Have any of you come up with an alternative to Electrostripping with
Cyanide ? Regular suppliers (Otto-Frei) refuse to carry it anymore.
When making Platinum items with pure gold inlays I used a Cyanide
Electro-stripping solution to enhance the crystallization-process as
well as lowering the level of the gold inlay. This would also
enhance the outline of the gold inlay. Electro-stripping also
enabled me to ‘block-out’ other gold sections (fingernail polish)
which traditional acid baths would attack.
Anyone have any suggestions?
