Rhodium Tank Plating Solution

Rhodium Tank Plating Solution Watch Our Video

Our rhodium tank 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.

For those of our customers based outside the UK and the EU, our Palladium Tank Plating Solution makes a great alternative to rhodium plating.

Rhodium content: 2 grams per litre.
