Masking titanium nitride coating to gold plate exposed stainless
I have a stainless steel knife blade that is coated with titanium nitride PVD coating. After it is coated,I etch letters into the titanium with a laser which exposes the stainless steel underneath. I need to gold plate this exposed stainless but I am having a problem with the gold adhering to the titanium nitride, it comes off easily but I am wasting gold.
I need to know if there is some sort of masking material I can put onto the steel during the lasering that will stand up to the heat and not melt, allow me to plate the stainless and then come off easily
