The platinum tank plating kit – 1 litre is ideal for plating bright platinum layers of up to 2 microns thick. Platinum is a good alternative to rhodium plating for a number of reasons;
- it is gram-for-gram much cheaper than rhodium.
- it can be plated a lot thicker than rhodium, giving your work a longer service life.
- the process give off a lot less gas, which greatly reduces pitting on the surface of your work.
