About This Item

 

Full Description

1.1''This specification covers requirements for electrodeposited palladium coatings containing at least 99.7 mass % of palladium metal. Composite coatings consisting of palladium with a thin gold overplate for applications involving electrical contacts are also covered.

1.2''Properties'''Palladium is the lightest and least noble of the platinum group metals. It has a specific gravity of 12.0, which is substantially less than gold (19.3) and platinum (21.5). This yields a greater volume or thickness of coating and, consequently, some saving of metal weight accompanied by a small sacrifice in corrosion resistance and reflectivity. The following table compares the hardness range of electrodeposited palladium with other electrodeposited noble metals and alloys (1,2).2
