Military Metalwork can offer a range of electroplating in a variety of metals and finishes.
Metals available are Hard Gold, Pure Gold, Silver, Rhodium,
Bright Nickel, Tin and Copper
Hard Gold Plating
With the addition of trace elements of alloying metal, this
increases the hardness of the gold, reducing the carat to
slightly below 24 K
Porosity from the underlying metal
can cause tarnishing unless an intemediate layer used.
This pure gold plating when used alone
gives a matt gold finish that allows burnishing to duplicate
the effects of fire gilding.

Silver Plating for decorative
Deposited in a either a bright or matt solution, this gives
a finish that mirrors the underlying metal. A polished surface
comes out bright, while a satin finish remains satin.
Military Metalwork uses a general thickness of at least 20 microns
of silver which should last 10
years of normal wear.
One of the platinum
group of metals. A bright silvery colour, it is used as a overplate
on silver because of it's resistance to tarnishing
