Epoxy Compounds for the Adhesion of Cadmium

Cadmium is a unique metal that resists corrosion, especially to salt and alkaline environments. Bluish-white in color, it offers thermal/electrical conductivity and high/low temperature serviceability. It has a low melting point of 320.9°C. Soft, malleable and ductile, cadmium is often used as a protective layer for other metals including iron, brass and aluminum. These coatings are commonly use in the mining, electronic, aerospace/defense and offshore oil industry. End use consumption for cadmium is primarily for batteries, pigments and stabilizers in addition to coating applications. Adverse health, safety and environmental issues are of much concern and limit usage.
