Gold plating

Gold, which is beautifully distinctive, having excellent electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, solderability, and other properties, plays an active part not only for decorative purposes but also as various types of functional plating for electronic devices and semiconductor parts as the only non-oxidizing metal.
Type of plating Features Characteristic value
Acidic cyanogen bath - Hardness and smoothness are enhanced by alloying trace amounts of cobalt or nickel.
- Application to high-reliability solderable parts, such as connectors and semiconductors.
- Strike plating from a strongly acidic bath is performed in the case of plating unplatable materials, such as stainless steel.
Hv150 - 180 (for contacts); contact resistance 0.58 – 0.62mΩ
Neutral cyanogen bath Applied for decorative purposes and to semiconductor-related parts requiring bonding. Hv60~80
Alkaline cyanogen bath Decorative uses: necklaces, watches, eyeglass frames, lighting apparatus, etc.
[1] Pink gold (Au-Cu alloy plating)
