G.S.P Platinum Plating Solution
Used as a brilliant substitute for rhodium but at a fraction of the cost, platinum is being used frequently for plating white gold jewellery - take a look at the composite photograph above which demonstrates how little difference there is between a ring plated in rhodium and a ring plated in platinum. This platinum solution can be plated directly over gold or white gold surfaces and gives great results.
Our G.S.P Platinum Plating Solution contains 5 grams of platinum per litre and produces a finish almost as white as rhodium and is very hard-wearing. It can be brush and tank plated, is most used by jewellers, and gives a very luxurious finish. If plating over metals other than gold or white gold, we recommend beginning with a flash-plate in our 24K Gold solution and the use of our G.S.P Brush Plating Probes or 316 Stainless Steel Flat Tank Plating Anodes for optimum performance.
Please note: this solution cannot be used in conjunction with any of the kits in our G.S.P Portal range and is not suitable for pen plating.

Just like rhodium, platinum requires a very highly polished substrate to look brilliant white. May require post-polishing to remove dark marks from higher current. We recommend the use of G.S.P Compound Polish mixed with G.S.P Gold Polish in a ratio of 1:1 for removing dark marks from plated platinum.
