First of all congratulations for FINISHING.COM. Magnificent idea.
We are manufacturers of silver (Sterling) products in Colombia. We have been working for more than 30 years and we have a favorable position in our market.
Our products are finished with an "usual" polishing process, but, our customers are now asking for something else that can protect the piece from tarnish.
We know by word of mouth that are some coating process that can finish the article to avoid future oxidation. We have thought to apply a thin coat of silver to the piece to mask welds and little imperfections.
Could you please tell us what kind of process (processes) are they. Who do I have to contact? What else do I have to know? Is there any publication that I can read?
I'd like to highlight and thank for this language thesaurus. Unfortunately I don't manage the English jargon for Silversmiths and it is a barrier to find information that fits the queries.
I appreciate any help you can provide and I offer my services as a consultant in Chemistry (B.Sc. Chem.) for those who may need some help as well.
I am sending some words translated regarding the powder coaters:
I would suggest for future occasions to show the complete text. The translation could be more accurate if it is possible to comprehend the whole context.

Technic offers a product called "Tarniban" that is widely used on silver and copper. Perhaps this is what you are referring to. Technic is located in Providence, Rhode Island.
