Product Details

Main benefits;

  • Makes a great alternative to rhodium plating giving an authentic 18 carat white gold or platinum plated look.
  • palladium plating solution (unlike rhodium) doesn’t etch materials made of calcium carbonate such as pearl and coral, so you won’t have to worry about masking out these materials before submerging them in your palladium plating bath.
  • can be used as a substitute for nickel as a barrier layer for gold plating on copper and its alloys.
  • can be used as an alternative to silver as it doesn’t tarnish and is hard-wearing.
  • Very low porosity – excellent for corrosion protection.
  • Readily wettable by solder and dissolves a lot more slowly than gold in the solder making it an excellent top coat over gold for electrical contacts.
