Gold Smith - Gold Plating Kit

The Gold Smith - Gold Plating Kit is an affordable, high quality kit designed for bench-top brush plating and fine select gold plating. Hobbyists and artists have never had such an affordable, high quality option available before.

This is a basic starter kit that DOES NOT include pretreatment solutions. It is ideal for plating onto small, clean, highly polished surfaces made of nickel, palladium, and gold. Examples include coins, touch-up for minimal areas of an already gold-plated item, and small decorative items.

It is also capable of plating onto highly polished surfaces of silver, copper, brass, bronze, and some types of solder if plated a minimum of ~1 minute per square inch, otherwise a diffusion barrier would be necessary.

This machine will not plate onto: Aluminum, Zinc, Titanium, Chrome, Mild Steel, and Steel alloys to include Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel.

This gold plating kit includes everything needed for fine select pen plating and brush plating 24K gold on surfaces that do not require pretreatment. The gold solution included can produce a cobalt hardened, 24K - Type 1 & 2, grade C gold deposit.
