Yours faithfully,

Hello, you write P.T.O. Are you really using Potassium- Titanium- Oxide- Oxalate-2-H2O?

We have good experience without Cr and the solution will last at least several months.

If I shell help you, please tell me your questions.

Dear sir,
I am having problem with the ematal bath.I am using 10g/l potassium Titanium Oxalate Acetate, 10g/l citric acid and 10g/l chromic acid. Temperature at 50 °C.
My problem are:
1.What is the correct current density used?
2.The deposit is soft. The deposit will peel out when cut with a sharp aluminium part. How to make it hard as the hardness of quartz?
3. What is the deposition speed (micron/minute) when apply certain current density e.g 3A/dm2?
4.Please advise on the ematal bath ingredients e.g the chemicals and their concentration.
5.What is cathode material used?

Thank you very much in advance.
