LITESURF Plating Technology - Interview with Dr. Erika Crandall, Senior R&D Product Development Engineer. In this video section, you will learn what actions automotive manufacturers should consider to avoid whiskers.
What actions must automotive manufacturers take to avoid whiskers?
Automotive manufacturers need to find a new plating solution that eradicates the whole whisker risk. Tin itself being such a highly motivated whiskering producer, it’s probably best to avoid the use of pure tin wherever possible, but this is not so easily done.
Any new replacements needs to be also a sustainable, non-toxic and environmentally friendly material.
