Champagne gold stainless steel

Does anybody know the process of making a stainless sheet into a champagne gold finish?

Hi, Kenneth. It may be possible to anodize the stainless to this color, but it's probably more likely that you are thinking of stainless steel with a titanium nitride or zirconium nitride finish.

It depends on what you mean by "champagne" color, but perhaps you should investigate Electroless Nickel, which is yellower than conventional electroplated nickel or stainless steel (certainly not as yellow as TiN or real gold).Guillermo Marrufo

My company has developed a real gold plating that is very light in color and comes very close to the pale yellow color of champagne. In fact we market it as Champagne Gold.
If you are talking about small pieces then it could be done in this kind of bath but large pieces would be cost prohibitive for you as this is a real gold bath and is very expensive to make up and maintain.

I think you're referring to titanium gold or zirconium brass stainless steel sheets.

you can activate or strike the stainless steel and plate an alloy gold bath with gold content as low as 1 g/l.Lee leong tee
