ProtoSpace offers a number of third-party finishes for different types of plating.

The most common plating request we get is for Tin Plating.

Tin plating deposits pure tin onto copper in order to further enhance the copper’s corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, and solderability.

Tin Plating

We can also source other third-party finishes, such as:

Cadmium Plating
Chrome Plating
Gold Plating
Nickel Plating
Sand Blasting
Silver Plating
Zinc Plating

Lead Times

Plating is completed off-site via a third-party supplier. This means there is additional lead time.

Regulatory Compliance

If you require ROHS and REACH-compliancy, please contact us.


Finish color will range based on the plating selected.

For Tin Plating, the finish color ranges from bright to a dark, matte gray. This is dependent upon material thickness, age of tin solution, and dipping time.
