This brush plating solution performs the same function as Gold Strike but has twice the gold content. It only plates slightly faster but has twice the coverage of Gold Strike. Like Gold Strike, 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 the S-Type Swab which can be purchased HERE. Recommended voltage: 3 volts Gold concentration: 4 grams per litre
