Gold Tank Plating Kit
A flexible gold tank plating kit that puts you in complete control of the gold tank plating process. With this kit you’ll be able to accurately plate any thickness of gold you require from thin, decorative layers of 0.1-0.2 microns all the way up to thick layers of gold Vermeil standard (2.5 microns)
Our Gold Tank Plating Kit is designed to deliver top quality plating results AND complete plating flexibility!
- Used with our unique Gold Tank Plating Calculator, you’ll be able to work out how long to plate your item to your required thickness and how much gold will be left in your gold plating solution after plating.
- All of the pieces of equipment and our Gold Plating Solution for tank and immersion plating have been designed to deliver consistent and measurable top quality gold plating results.
- It fits around your needs – you can plate the full range of metal finishes.
- You can plate items small and large – our kit has been developed to accommodate tanks of up to 5 litres in capacity.
