Seeking Electro-less Gold Plating Supplies


I am seeking a supplier for electro-less gold plating materials.

Are you looking for electroless or immersion gold? They are two very different animals. From what I've heard, no one has really developed a good, stable electroless gold yet. The baths tend to make flakes (spontaneously drop out) quite readily. There are a number of good immersion processes available.

Mr. Vins' response is several years old, Ian, and I think if you check with vendors like Technic you will find that there have been substantial improvements in electroless (autocatalytic) gold plating. Good luck.
