Q - What is the difference between the different gold plating options?
A - There are three different types of gold plating. Not all are available on each product.
-Regular Gold (24k) - Parts are tumbled in special containers all at one time. This provides a good, economical plating.
-Upgrade Gold (24k) - This plating method is standard on most of our writing instruments. In this method, each individual part is separately hung on a plating tree. These trees are then immersed in a series of plating and cleaning baths. Cobalt/Palladium is also added to the chemicals to improve wear ability. This provides a superior adhesion of the gold and enhanced durability.
-Titanium/Gold - This is an incredibly durable plating method. Titanium Nitride (TIN) is applied to the part and gold is sputtered over the TIN. TIN is incredibly hard and molecularly bonds with the part. The TIN color is matched precisely with the gold color so that as the gold gradually wears, it cannot be noticed. This provides for the best and longest lasting finish available.
