High Conductive platings

From most-to-least conductive, the top 5 metals are Silver, Copper, Gold, Aluminum and Zinc.
Silver is the most electrically conductive metal.
ln wet process, we can plate a material with a silver, copper, and gold. On the other hand, aluminum cannot be plated in wet process.
In addition, at the normal environment, the aluminum is not used for てthe contacts and the connectors, because it is oxidized by air.
Depending on the application, gold, silver, tin, palladium and palladium alloy plating are usually used for the contacts and the connectors.
