Pure Gold Plating

22 Carat, our purest gold finish
Our standard finish is Gold 22 carat, is the purest of all the gold finishes that we produce. It has a very rich colour because there are so little other metals added but of course this does make it the softest and therefore the most susceptible to abrasion. It is mainly used for its decorative appearance on articles which are not going to be handled, if it is liable take any wear and tear then the deposit required needs to be considerable heavier than the other gold finishes we offer and therefore more expensive.

Incalux Gold Plating

A durable and decorative gold finish
Widely used for plumbing fittings, sanitary ware, lighting, and many other household items. If you are looking for the quality of gold but with a practical durability then this is the finish for you. We have added small traces of other metals like nickel to the gold in order to tone it down and improve the hardness / durability. This has lightened the colour down from our rich "gold" colour to a more widely appreciated 18 carat shade. The colour combined with increased hardness has made this the most popular of all the golf finishes that we produce.

Antique Gold Plating

A functional and decorative gold finish.
Although not as popular as Incalux this finish is widely used for household gold such as; plumbing fittings, sanitaryware, gold plated faucets, household lighting, and many other household gold items. It has a weak gold colour which verges on nickel. This finish has become especially popular on taps (faucets) and other water fittings during the last decade. If you are looking for something different from chrome but think gold is a little over the top then you should consider this finish.

Our vats are laboratory analysed and maintained in order to produce a consistent gold colour and ensure the hardness factor is kept at an optimum.
