Hydrogen Embrittlement in Plating

Steel of ultimate tensile strength 150 ksi or greater having residual stresses from machining, grinding, hardening, etc., should be stress relieved or shot peened prior to plating. Steel having a tensile strength of at least 160 ksi or HRC 36 shall be given a hydrogen bake-out at 191 C (375 F)

Zinc alloys have received most of the attention as cadmium alternatives. Much of their corrosion resistance capability was established on pristine surfaces in NSS with an unspecified plating thickness. The high nickel (10-14%), zinc-nickel alloys and tin-zinc were reported to give superior performance.

mechanicsupport: Hydrogen Embrittlement

It is not uncommon to have decorative engine hardware cadmium plated and oven-baked during overhaul. Extreme caution is advised. A particular hazard of cadmium-plating high strength steels is the absorption of hydrogen into the base metal. This hazard is countered by baking the parts after plating. The baking process is critical.

Why cadmium plated bolts rather than stainless steel
