This plating solution can be used for both brush and tank plating very adhesive layers on to difficult-to plate metals such as chrome, surgical steel and dental alloys and tungsten. When brush plating, all swabs can be used with this solution, however for longer life we recommend using S-Type Swabs which can be purchased by clicking on the link in the ‘Related Products’ section below this panel.
It is primarily used as an adhesive undercoat for other metals such as gold, silver, palladium and platinum and should not be plated to a thickness of over 0.1 micron.

Notes:

  • When plating in recesses, we recommend using the using the Plating Pen (8 – 10 volts, Fibre Nib).
    Or consider using Gold Strike Pen Plating Solution.
  • Plating rate decreases considerably below 20 °C
  • We strongly advise against the use of stainless steel anodes for most of our plating processes
  • Plating rates are calculated over a sample area which is permanently covered by swab.
