Regular price $47.00 Sale

Features Benefits
Made from platinum plated (platinised) titanium Ensures top quality results for all precious metals including gold, rhodium, platinum and ruthenium
Can be used with other plating solutions
Will not darken the swab (as is the case with a carbon electrode).

 

Note: It is very important to use the correct electrode. If a stainless steel electrode is used for gold plating, iron from the stainless steel will react with the gold chemical and dissolve into the gold plating solution. This will poison it, making the gold insoluble and not able to plate. This will greatly reduce the efficiency of the solution.
