Precious Metals & Compounds

This product section is not related to refined precious metals per se, but to the extended precious metals industrial range like:

Compounds, precious metals powders, concentrates containing precious metals, certified mixtures of precious metals, flat and round bars, wire , anodes and sputtering targets.

A very first application of precious metals is in electroplating used in electronics, to provide a corrosion-resistant electrically conductive layer forelectrical connectors and printed circuit boards.

Another application of gold electroplating, is to control, thermally, spacecraft instruments thanks to its 99% reflectivity in infrared wavelengths.

Precious metal layers can be plated by electrolytic or electroless processes. And there are many factors to consider like what the deposit will be used for, configuration of the part, materials compatibility and the cost of processing.

Our team, in cooperation with the leading Russia based precious metal refinery, is at your disposal to exchange technical points for your high technology industrial application, in between 7 main precious metals and 51 compounds options.
