Three Module Gold Plating System - TriVal Acid Gold StrikeProLab cm
This ProLab cm Three Module System for steel and stainless steel was designed for gold plating onto steel or stainless steal items that do not require a nickel underplate. A popular example of this application is decorative gold plating onto surgical equipment such as hemostats, clamps or scissors. Plating onto Jewelry items where nickel needs to be avoided. The Three Module Gold Plating System comes with Electro Clean, TriVal and your choice of gold. You can choose from 24K, 18K, 14K, or Pure Gold Solutions.
Steel and especially stainless steel require special activation of the surface to be plated. TriVal Gold Strike is a proprietary method of providing this activation developed by Gold Plating Services. The cost of activating steel and stainless steel with TriVal is a little higher but there are many advantages to gold strike activation. One important advantage is that after activation a visual inspection of the surface will confirm that the surface was activated properly. Another advantage of activation with TriVal is that some plating specifications do not allow the use of any nickel in the plating process. An example of this is jewelry items to be marketed to the European Union. No nickel is allowed in the process.
The beauty of the ProLab cm systems is that should your process requirements change, a Three Module system can easily be expanded to a Four Module system with the addition of another process module such as the Bright Nickel Module or even a Five Module system with the addition of yet another process module such as the Bright Acid Copper Module or Wood's Nickel Strike Module. The expansion of the ProLab cm is easy without requiring any changes to your original system.
This system comes with everything you need to plate gold onto properly prepared steel or stainless steel.
