Industrial applications include high voltage switch and RF contacts and the process is widely used decoratively on
silverware and objet d'art.
Modern silver plating is done from bright plating solutions which means that the deposited silver mirrors the surface
on to which it is initially deposited ie a polished surface comes out polished and a satin (silk) finish remains satin.
Industrial silver plating thicknesses are normally prescribed by the client.
BJS's standard thickness for decorative silver plate is 25 microns (average). This, depending on use and cleaning,
should last 30 years of normal wear.
Silver plating solutions are complex solutions and have excellent macro throwing power ie the deposit is fairly even
from edge to the centre of a bowl.
BJS offers a full restoration service for silverware including repair, polishing and replating.
All silver plating is tracked, monitored and controlled ensuring that the mass of metal deposited is within 5% of measured
and calculated weight.
