This plating solution performs the same function as Gold Strike Brush and Tank but has twice the gold content. It only plates slightly faster but has twice the coverage of Gold Strike Brush and Tank. It plates very adhesive layers on to difficult-to plate metals such as chrome, surgical steel and dental alloys. Standard swabs can be used with this solution, however for longer life we recommend using S-Type Swabs which can be purchased by clicking on the link in the ‘Related Products’ section below this panel.
It is primarily used as an adhesive undercoat for other metals such as gold, silver, palladium and platinum.
Gold Strike should not be plated over 0.1 micron.

Brush plating voltage: 3 – 4 volts
Plating Factor (tank): 0.03 amp/cm2 (see Tech Specs)

Gold content of working solution: 4 grams per litre

HS Code: 3824 99 70

Our Gold Strike Xtra plates adherent layers of gold straight on to chrome without stripping and difficult to plate stainless steel alloys. The ‘Xtra’ means there’s 2 grams more of gold in it compared with our Gold Strike, so it plates at the same rate but has more than twice the coverage of Gold Strike. Particularly useful for plating super adherent key layers for subsequent plating of thick layers of gold of 3 microns and above. Please use a Carbon Electrode, which can be purchased HERE.

Pictured here is our brush plating equipment which is powered by our EasyPlater. It’s very straightforward to use, compact and lightweight.

  • When plating in recesses, we recommend using the using the Plating Pen (8 – 10 volts, Fibre Nib).
  • Plating rate decreases considerably below 20 °C
  • We strongly advise against the use of stainless steel anodes for most of our plating processes
  • Plating rates are calculated over a sample area which is permanently covered by swab.
