BRITE tin plating .... creates nearly ideal conditions for tin whisker growth. I have seen brite tin plating grow whiskers in a clean room environment (no need for moisture or temperature cycling)- whiskers a 1/2 inch long! and through plastic!
Created crazy problems... the whiskers are soooo thin, (but highly conductive) they are hard to see without magnification. easy to break, but grow back. Nothing but intermittent problems for the circuitry involved.

Many of the materials in this slideshow are resins or elastomers, plus reinforced materials, styrenics, and PLA masterbatches. Applications range from automotive and aerospace to industrial, consumer electronics and wearables, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, as well as sporting goods, and materials for protecting food and beverages.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
