G.S.P 18K Gold Plating Solution (Gold Strike)
Our G.S.P 18K Gold Plating Solution produces a slightly lighter tone of yellow and a harder wearing surface, which is a common request for plating on jewellery. 18K Gold is also a popular choice for gold plating watches. It can be tank, brush, and pen plated and contains 4 grams of gold per litre. It can be plated to a vermeil thickness of 2.5 microns and produces a hard-wearing, long-lasting plate.
The main use of this solution is to act as a flash gold strike over stainless and non stainless steels, to allow for easy and full adhesion of 24K Gold or other finishes.
For optimum performance, use with our G.S.P Brush Plating Probes or 316 Stainless Steel Flat Tank Plating Anodes.

When tank plating, sway item continuously or use air agitation directly under the item that is being plated.
