Yiannis- You don't state specifically what function the gold plating is to perform. In the 60's, NASA used a gold tint on the inside of spacesuit visors as filters (ever wonder why they looked so reflective from a distance?). This was produced by a very old process known as "silvering", which has been used to deposit nickel, gold, copper, and silver. See "Metal Finishing Guidebook and Directory" under "metallizing non-conductors". At least, that's where it used to be. I don't know about the newest ones. I personally have experience only with silver. This process utilizes a double-headed spray gun which sprays from one head the metal-containing solution and a "reducer" from the other head, forming a metallic film on the (properly prepared) target when they meet. Gold has also been deposited on glass using sputtering and CVD processes. If you're looking for the finished product, I haven't a clue. Patrick Marks
