Optional Plating Technologies
Electroplating(Gold Electroplated Finishes)
Method using electricity passing through a bath containing ions of the desired metal plating. The electricity will pass the metal from its dissolved ion state on to the surface of the piece, in its solid state. The durability depends on the thickness.
- 1 to 5 microns thickness.
Gold PVD Coating(“Gold Filled” Finishes)
Ulltilize a titanium nitride that provides an extremely durable coating. PVD coatings are more resistant to corrosion from sweat and regular wear than gold plating.
- Corrosion resistant
- Longer lifetime
- Gold plated pieces can discolor within a short time period
- Gold PVD coatings can be 10 times thicker than standard gold plating
