I thought rhodium was the way to go as nickel carries many negatives. But apparently I am way behind the current technology. Ends up this palladium solution is very user friendly. I use liter beakers for the baths.
My usual suppliers just aren't up to this level or should I say my level, which is beginner/small batches.
Shipped the first batch yesterday, another out tomorrow. Look forward to many more.
I will also be doing a rhodium version as the outer layer for a silver crystalline look.
The samples look very cool.
This system includes a very good electo cleaning step. Not stripping, so they say, so there is no degragation of
the surface to be plated. But it bubbles like hell. Thus the crystalline structure of the surface is maintained. That was quite a sticking point when looking at other systems. Its easy to trash that delicate surface.
