Rhodium Brush Plating Solution

Rhodium Brush Plating Solution

Our rhodium brush plating solution plates bright and white. One of the reasons for this is that it is free from additives whose breakdown products can cause darkening of the plate and reduce shelf life.

This solution has an extra long shelf life of over 5 years.

You will need to use our S-Type Swabs with this solution which can be purchased HERE

For our customers outside the UK and EU our White Palladium Brush Plating Solution could be a good alternative.
