High Speed Gold Tank Plating Solution can plate at rates above 0.3 micron-per-minute, twice the rate of our standard gold tank plating solution. This solution contains 4 grams of gold for every litre of solution.
This solution plates a shade of gold similar to that of our Gold Tank Plating Solution.

 

HS Code: 3824 99 70

Our High Speed Gold Tank Plating Solution, when used with our on-line High Speed Gold Tank Plating Calculator, means you’re now in complete control of the gold plating process.
Plating to vermeil standard requires a layer of gold of at least 2.5 microns on sterling silver and this solution will help you plate to these kinds of specific and substantial thicknesses of gold.
You’ll not only be confident that the layer of gold you’ve plated is of a uniform thickness, you’ll also know how much gold is left in your remaining plating solution and therefore how long it will take to plate your next item to the same or a different specification.
Our High Speed Gold Tank Plating Kit also offers you the flexibility of plating larger objects in our 500ml, 1 and 2 litre capacity Plating Beakers.

2. In the second box, enter the surface area of the article in square centimetres (cm2).

3. In the third box, enter the gold concentration (for a new solution that’s: 4 grams per litre).

4. In the fourth box, enter the volume of solution you’re using.

5. Click the ‘Calculate’ button.

6. Read off the amp setting for your rectifier and the plating time.

7. The concentration of gold remaining and the volume of replenisher to add is show in the next two boxes.

8. The cost of solution used and weight of gold are shown in the final two boxes.
