An electroplating alloy combination of tin, copper and zinc, is an excellent silver alternative that is tarnish-free. It is also an excellent substitute for nickel
for zippers, buttons and clasps. Approximately 20% of the world’s population has a skin reaction to nickel metal. The longer this metal
is in contact with skin, the more likely
it is to cause a burn.
Nickstar Black Nickel – Nickstar – a decorative black nickel technology that deposits a thin, and highly uniform over-coat of black nickel-zinc alloy, preserving the substrate's brightness while producing an exceptionally rich black nickel finish.
Rhoduna Alloy – the world's first galvanic rhodium alloy, formulated from rhodium and ruthenium. It provides whiteness and performance characterstics equal to the highest-quality rhodium coatings, with even greater smoothness and durability.
Black Ruthenium – considered by many to be among the most attractive finishes. This process produces a deep, dark plated surface that closely resembles fine onyx. It seems to reflect and absorb light simultaneously. On large jewelry pieces, it is the perfect offset for gold. It is also an elegant finish for upscale eyewear.
Platinodes – a product of German engineering, these are the most sophisticated platinized titanium anodes available. Conventional anodes are either platinum plated (leaving micro-pores) or clad (leaving micro-cracks). To counteract the aggressive nature of gold or rhodium plating (with the combination of electricity and chemistry both working to shorten the anode’s life), these anodes are plated in a unique molten platinum method — thus avoiding the cracks or pores and extending anode life. These anodes are available in a combination of mesh sizes, platinum thicknesses, and single or double-sided coatings.
Auruna, Platinode, TD, J-1, J-2, and Miralloy are trademarked products of Umicore-GT.
Uyemura jewelry finishes include Miralloy nickel alternative, white bronze, lead-free white bronze, black ruthenium, gold plating, white rhodium, and highly reflective plating processes for fine gemstones.
