The relative merits of different plating methods are discussed and a new type of electrolyte for autocatalytic gold plating is described. The chemical system of this bath has an ideal combination of properties such as stability and high deposition speed, combined with long bath life and high metal turnover.

The bath’s composition, maintenance and sensitivity to contaminants are discussed, and its operating characteristics and the properties of the gold coatings formed from it are presented. Areas suitable for its application are suggested.
