I have some queries about rhodium plating:
What wire (Stainless steel or other) should I use for handling
jewelry for rhodium and gold electroplating? Should I connect an
alligator clip to the negaive terminal wire to hold the handling
wire OR should I attach the handling wire directly to the negative
terminal copper wire.
I had read somewhere that one could electroclean in a stainless
steel beaker or jug. Would there be be any problem if the jewelry
touched the steel beaker. I mean to stay postive and negative
touching each other. If not, then Why???
What is Nitro cellular lacquer?
The NC Lacquer that i bought is transparent and will not show up
distinctly while lacquering. How do I color it?
5 a ). How often do i change the distilled water used for rinsing.
b) i am initially rinsing in tap water after ultrasonic cleaning then
in distilled water. Doesn’t the distill water contaminate with tap
water thus destroying the characteristics of the distilled water.
Should i use distill water throughout the process, even after the
dilute sulphuric acid dip for.
Rinsing in running water under a tap can take away with it
prcious stone like diamonds along with it into the drain. Then how
do i rinse under running water.
Dont traces of sulphuric acid still enetr the rhodium bath even
if i rinse it in water.
8.after taking out the jewelry item from the bath and drag out
/rinsing is it required to place it in hot water.
- I do not have a steam cleaner. How do i clean and dry the item in
the final stage
