Product information "Gold Flash" from Betzmann Galvanik
Gold Flash with 2 grams of gold per liter - wonderfully suitable as an intermediate layer or decorative layer.
The Gold Flash from Betzmann Galvanik has 2 main areas of application:
1. optical-decorative layer:
Gold is soft and needs the addition of cobalt as a hard abrasion resistant top layer, which is not included in this product.
Therefore, the gold layer from Goldflash appears somewhat lighter yellow.
Parts that are not subject to any stress, such as souvenirs, horseshoes for decoration, etc., can be easily, directly and inexpensively gold-plated with the Goldflash.
Tip: You can first gild parts very intensively and thickly with the Goldflash and then coat them briefly with the 8 or 12 gram cobalt-displaced hard gold!
2. bonding primer for the following coatings:
Many applications require thin layers of gold before actual plating. Until now, this was only possible with the use of 24 carat gold and was therefore quite costly.
cost-intensive. This is now a thing of the past.
With the Goldflash from Betzmann Galvanik, you can now apply the desired gold layer.
As an example, direct silver plating of nickel is usually not feasible, so you can first gold plate with the Goldflash, then silver plate.
Likewise, when using black chrome, rose gold plating, green gold plating, the gold flash serves as an optimal bonding base when copper or nickel cannot be applied directly!
Also, gilding nickel, which naturally oxidizes, is very easy and spotless.
Then chrome plating on Goldflash can be done even easier and without problems.
Despite gold plating, the material input is far below 10 cents per cm2 of surface!
Recommended electrode: platinum electrode, graphite electrode
Voltage: from approx. 4 volts
Polishing if necessary
Continue with the top layer chrome, white gold, rose gold, green gold
|Allows electroplating of a thin layer of strongly adherent gold.||Before applying another layer of plating, for example when silver or palladium plating on stainless steel, nickel and its alloys. 24 carat thin coats of gold: electronics, optics – reflectors – and where the item is going to be protected with a clear lacquer layer.|
