Gold Electroplating

One of the most attractive and precious decorative metal is Gold. This metal is mainly used for Jewelry and decorative electronic Items. This process involves deposition of a thin layer of gold on the surface of some other metal. Apart from gold the other metals mostly used are Silver or copper. Gold imparts excellent corrosion resistance properties when deposited in surface of copper. The gold metal is widely used in the electronic industry for plating of circuit boards and electrical connectors.

Benefits/Features of gold electroplating
Gold electroplating, when used in jewelry manufacturing, allows the manufacturer to provide the market with jewelry that appears to be made of pure gold at a cheaper price as the jewelry is only plated with gold. This process can also provide benefits to the electronics industry when used. The gold plating on electronics allows the electronic device to be more conductive and more resistant to wear, thus performing better and lasting longer.
Typical Application of Gold Electroplating
Gold electroplating is commonly used in manufacturing jewelry by plating silver, and in electronics in electrical connectors and printed circuit boards which forms an electrically conductive layer on copper that is also resistant to corrosion.
Additonal Information About Gold Plating
It is easy process with well defined chemistry and time relationship. End product may look different depending on the electrolyte solution. If you are trying to match a gold article you will have to coat that part too.
