Providing electroplating for several major industrial sectors, Torpedo Specialty Wire, Inc. works with an array of plating materials and substrate metals to accommodate a range of customer applications, including automotive components, lighting lead wire, and music wire. We feature full soft, intermediate and full hard tempering, as well as diameters ranging from 0.003 to 0.100 inches. High reliability solderable connections are assured with applications of various compositions of tin and lead solders on electronic component lead wires. These platings are capable of complying with military and commercial solderability specifications.

Our nickel plated coatings will protect conductors from the effects of high temperature, oxidation and intermetallic alloy formation. Torpedo Specialty Wire's nickel plating for example, is available with coating weights up to  27% and can protect an electrical conductor's integrity even during continuous exposure to 450 degrees centigrade, while providing resistance to chemical attack as well. Torpedo Specialty Wire's Pennsylvania focused nickel plating facility represents one of the world's foremost continuous electroplating plants. Capable of applying heavy nickel coatings to virtually any commercially utilized substrate, it provides ductile platings for many applications. High throughput and ability to plate a range of diverse wire diameters characterize this world-class operation.
