As a engineer for a plating company that plates nickel/gold on glass sealed electrical connectors, I have been given the task of researching the use of potassium nitrate in a solution , used after final gold plating.
I am told this will do something to the glass sealed area in so much it would convert sodium on the glass surface.
The sodium apparently causes a resistance problem in which the potassium nitrate solution will remove. Does anyone, have any expert advice or suggestions to assist me.
