Because of its hardness, dimensional tolerance and resistance to hydrogen, cadmium plating has been used to protect steel components in marine environments. However, Cadmium is thought to be toxic and a search is on for an alternative. In this paper, cadmium and zinc-nickel plating/coating were compared in water immersion, temperature cycling, rain, humidity, and salt fog testing.
