Silver is used as a reflector for LED lighting because it shows near 100% reflectance in the
visible light range.
METEK produces many silver plating for LEDs.
Silver is characterized by the highest electrical conductivity among metals. It has
excellent antibacterial properties and is highly reflective.
As decoration plating, the use in surface treatment to jewelry, tableware, etc.
Electronic components such as connectors, lead frames and LEDs Bearings, metal bearings, etc.
Medical equipment, optical equipment, etc.
Plating example by METEK
Plating on lead pins for thermal fuses.
Full and partial plating of semiconductor lead frames such as ICs and LSIs.
Bits of knowledge
Even in the same silver plating, the gloss, reflectance, hardness, etc. differ depending on
the plating method and the substances contained in the coating of plating. In addition, hard silver plating
with excellent wear resistance and conductivity is also used for high-speed charging plugs for electric
