Gold Contact Plating Kit


If you have solder contaminated contacts or contacts that don't meet the minimum thickness specification or damaged gold edge contacts then this is the PCB repair kit for you. The kit includes all of the materials you will need to repair damaged gold contacts: a DC power supply and all the tools and materials needed for gold edge contact plating.

The BEST gold contact plating kit includes everything needed for fine select pen plating and brush plating 24K gold onto electronic contact surfaces. The gold solution included will, after repair, produce a cobalt hardened, 24K – Type 1&2, grade C gold deposit. This is the gold we use for electronic and technical applications where durability, conductivity and solderability is important.

We will give you all of the tools, including “how to” instructional videos, so that you can repair your own gold fingers. Our professional master instructors can teach the repair methods either at BEST Inc or at your facility on how to perform this repair.

The BEST gold contact plating kit includes: 
  • Variable power supply from 3 - 9 Volts
  • Absorbent pen for cleaning of metal surfaces
  • 24K gold plating pen for replating of gold contacts
  • Nickel pen for plating over copper prior to gold metallization
  • Cerium oxide 2.5oz vile for polishing
