Tifoo Palladium electrolyte - the non-allergenic alternative to nickel electrolyte. Until today, palladium-plating is a quite rarely used electroplating method. In its function as substitution for galvanic nickel-plating, it can offer some advantages (despite the higher price). So, what are its advantages? Normally, a nickel electrolyte is used to create a barrier layer made of nickel between copper and gold to prevent the two metals from mixing together. The advantages are the following:
Palladium is more noble than nickel, that means that there is no corrosion on the surface and the palladium doesn't need to be gilded nor activated like nickel.
The deposition speed and the effectiveness are excellent, i.e. there is no unwanted gas formation.
This electrolyte deposits silver white, very bright palladium and can be used as a bright "finish". When gilding on it with Tifoo Gold electrolyte and pen plating, you will achieve a perfect result.
Unlike the nickel electrolyte, palladium isn't cancerogenic and because of that authorised for private costumers! A very good combination for gilding almost any metal is: copper (acidic), palladium and finally gold.
