24K Gold Replenisher Solution - TDS
Gold Plating Services’ 24K Gold Replenisher Solution is specifically designed to replenish the gold depleted from the following solutions produced by Gold Plating Services:
24K Bright Gold Solution, bath (24K, 18K, 14K versions)
24K Pure Gold Solution, bath
To verify the recommended gold content of each of these solutions refer to the specific solution’s Technical Data Sheet. The gold content can be measured by laboratory analysis or estimated by keeping a plating log of the area and thickness plated.
Fine gold content: 1 gram fine gold per 30ml of 24K Gold Replenisher Solution
Additional provided coverage: Adding 1-gram fine gold, (30 ml of replenisher), to a properly functioning bath will allow additional coverage of ~300 in2 with the gold plated to an average decorative thickness. A gold plating thickness of 8 - 10 micro-inches is a common thickness for decorative gold plating and exceeds the US Federal Trade Commission standards for, (non-jewelry), gold plated items to be marketed as “gold plated”.
Note: During plating with either of the two above named baths the pH will slowly rise and should be checked every 100-ampere minute with a glass electrode pH meter. To lower the pH add pH adjusting salts in small increments, (28g/ gallon of solution).
To raise the pH use dilute, (20%), reagent grade potassium hydroxide dissolved in distilled water.
