I am trying to get my factory to experiment with this and have
bought the midas palladium plating solution and midas guide to
plating. Neither products have instructions like suggested bath
temperatures or voltages for palladium solution.
You will find on page 17 of the Midas Plating Guide the instructions
for this solution.
-Use at 120-140 f
-Use a platinized titanium anode on the positive lead
-operate at 1 to 3 volts
-Attach the work piece to the positive lead and immerse and agitate
mildly time in solution: 30 seconds to 2 minutes.
-water rinse acid dip and water rinse again.
Some other tips:
-Always preplate your sterling with nickel first.
-Use a high caret gold, platinum, stainless steel or freshly nickel
plated handling wire on your work piece.
-Use distilled water for the rinse water.
-Have dedicated rinse water for ALL solutions.
If you wish you may give me a call I’ll be happy to walk you through
