During electroplating, a steady current flow from an electrolyte enriched with salts and gold ions deposits the gold onto the component’s conductive surface. Gold coatings are generally characterized by high ductility, resistance to tarnishing, good solderability and a low, specific electrical resistance.
We offer both common gold plating and gold/cobalt alloy coatings, which are more resistant to wear and harder. Both types of surface coatings are suitable, for instance, for electroplating plug connectors for the electronics industry. However, these coatings are also worth considering when it comes to batteries, professional halogen lamps, components used in the aerospace industry, radar equipment and high-temperature soldering.
