24K Gold Tank Plating Kit 1 US GALLON [3.8L]
PART NUMBER: GLD250
Work safely with cyanide free gold to plate jewelry, flatware, baby shoes, flowers, bathroom fittings and much more.
Caswell 24ct Gold is ideal for immersion plating of larger items. For brush plating applications, please use our FastGold system.
Certainly, tank-plating gold requires much less supervision and effort than brush plating. 24Ct Gold plates @ 2 micro inches per minute using approx 3 volts. Plating time is 30-60 seconds, to provide a durable decorative finish.
An application of a Clear Lacquer or Collinite Wax over a plated item will increase its wear, reduce water spotting and enhance the gold's color.
Cyanide free solution eliminates the dangers of deadly poisoning from ingestion through the skin or from the production of cyanide gas.
The system operates with either stainless steel anodes, or 24 carat gold anodes. Gold anodes prolong the life of the solution, but are obviously very expensive, and are so small that they're only useful for tiny items, such as rings.
Caswell 24ct Gold will plate directly onto tin, copper, brass, bronze, nickel, silver and most lead free solders. Some alloys must be copper or nickel plated first. Steel must be nickel plated first.
Trying to match existing gold supplied by another company is difficult as shades may vary. (It is better to lightly recoat the old gold with a new layer)
The system contains 2 pennyweights gold per US Gallon of solution.
