example usage 1

Because our Gold Plating Solution for tank plating contains 4g of gold per litre, it is very flexible and can be used to gold plate on sterling silver to vermeil standard (a gold thickness of 2.5 microns) as well as plating thin, decorative gilding layers of 0.1 – 0.2 microns. All you have to do is enter in the surface area and the thickness of plate you require into our Plating Calculator, which can be found on this page to the right of this panel, and plating times for whatever thicknesses you need are worked out for you. The ring in the photo has a surface area of 8cm squared and took 14 minutes to plate to a thickness of 2.5 microns. If only a layer of 0.1 microns was required then the ring would have only needed 33 seconds immersion in a 250ml tank.
