Due of its high corrosion resistance and its disinclination to form an oxide layer, Gold is widely used as a functional coating in the electronics industry. Silchrome offers immersion plating that is designed primarily for the plating of small parts typically used in electronic engineering. It is not a process suitable for decorative plating.
In the electronics industry it is used on printed circuit boards, connectors, etc. The gold is deposited as pure gold and is suitable for maintaining the solderability of copper surfaces.
It tends to be deposited onto (usually) a nickel undercoat which will assist its wear resistance properties and also helps to overcome any problems associated with porosity in the gold deposit.
