Tarnish resistant Silverplate?


Dear Sirs

We manufacture Silverplated Tableware and Giftware products made either from Cold Rolled brass sheet or else Sand Casted from Brass scrap. A major problem is with regard to tarnishing of the Silverplate. We would be grateful if someone could provide advice on how to prevent tarnish, at least till the products are on the shop shelves... maybe three to four months, if not longer.

Two parameters are important - the mirror bright shine or colour should not change substantially and the prducts should still be "food safe ".

Thank You

Dear Deepak,

Try 056 from Atotech or if you find it costly use a similar product from Progressive Chemicals Bombay. Both these need to be plated on .

If you prefer to use only immersion type of anti tarnish, GTZ and Chemitall Rai also have excellent products.
