Silver or Gold PlatingSelect a Gallery:
Silver or Gold Plated - Any of the copper based projects can be silver or gold plated with easy. Because copper oxidizes, resulting in reduced conductivity, silver plating is recommended. Even if silver oxidizes, it will remain highly conductive. Gold plating is recommended for any project that is expected to last a long time. Gold is not as conductive as silver, but it does not tarnish like Silver and is resistant to corrosion. Thus, creating a longer life span of the coil.
