For white nickel-free plating
Respected sir or madam,
I am looking for a substitute for palladium plating which is low in cost .please do help me to know which chemical should I use and where will I get it .
This material is sometimes called "white bronze" or "tri-metal" and also goes by brand names like Albaloy and Mirraloy, Robin. It is an alloy of copper, tin, and zinc. It is rather difficult to control this alloy because three metals with different potentials must deposit in the right ratio, and I don't think you have much of a shot at it except if you buy a proprietary process.

Use white bronze. This is being used now as a barrier layer in jewellery by EU producers as nickel is banned. The technology has progressed well in recent years and the commercial baths are easy to control.
