Platinor®: Berkem’s Winning Formula

Platinum plating instead of rhodium and palladium. To enhance the preciousness of jewelry and gain shine and resistance.

This, in a nutshell, is Platinor®, Berkem’s new plating solution that, due to its elevated compatibility with rhodium, acts as a perfect alternative in pre-rhodium treatments which it can totally replace in decorative applications, thus adding value in virtue of its recognized prestige. Platinor® is, in fact, an acidic plating solution with which to obtain pure platinum or platinum-ruthenium deposits resistant to both wear and corrosion, thicknesses of up to 20 microns, outstanding shine and an everlasting whiteness with color coordinates (L* 88.0, a* 0.6, b* 3.5) similar to those of rhodium. A series of much appreciated added values, firstly among the public, which, due to its rareness in nature, has always considered platinum as a precious metal, and secondly, among those who create jewelry, especially in view of its “X Factors”, such as its ability to “embrace” diamonds and stones more firmly than any other metal, and its natural whiteness, optimal for enhancing the sparkle of the gems.
