Gold plating Alloy 625 without peeling


We would like to know if Alloy 625 can be gold plated and what we need to do to prepare the material? With the first trial, the plating was flaking off.

Hi, Kris.

You label yourself as a hobbyist, and it may be practical for a hobbyist to gold plate some things and not others. The usual approach to gold plating of high nickel alloys like this one includes either a nickel strike (Wood's Nickel) or using a PVD process rather than electroplating.

Good luck.
