Silver plating has many different uses in an industrial setting. It can be used as an engineering coating due to its superior conductivity and corrosion resistance. When used in plating, silver's conductivity allows for extensive use in electronics and semiconductor industries. It is also used extensively in the aerospace, telecommunications, military, and automotive industries. Silver plating creates a surface that can be soldered and exhibits low electrical resistance; it is also useful for bearing surfaces and anti-galling applications.
