Palladium Bath, Prod-ID: NC400

Palladium bath NC400

The palladium bath NC400 is a weakly alkaline electrolyte which is suitable for the deposition of bright, decorative, light palladium layers up to 0.5 micron thickness. The palladium electrolyte can be used especially as a pre-palladium (e.g. before rhodium plating). Due to its excellent throwing power, expensive precious metal can be saved. NC400 is suitable for decorative and technical applications, for rack and barrel operation.
