Our Gold Plating Solution NB SEMIPLATE AU 100

1 and 5 L units, short lead time, (AZ-)Resist compatible

General Information

NB SEMIPLATE AU 100 is an alkaline, non-cyanide electroplating formulation which produces a bright, ductile deposit.

NB SEMIPLATE AU 100 is a ready-to-use product. It is not necessary to add other materials for the initially start of the application. Over time, it may be necessary depending on the electrolyte and application to add additives (see data sheet).

In comparison with other gold plating processes, the NB SEMIPLATE AU 100 electrolyte demonstrates exceptional throwing power that results in good coverage of recesses, holes and hollows of parts of complex geometry.

Deposits from the NB SEMIPLATE AU 100 process also exhibit the unique ability to build brightness with increasing thickness. Specific gravity measurements of the deposit consistently show values of 19.1 which indicate freedom of codeposited polymers generally found in deposits from other systems of similar purity. NB SEMIPLATE AU 100 deposits have main applications in MEMS processing.

  • Physical Properties of the Deposit
  • Purity 99.9%Hardness 130 to 190 mHV0,020
  • Contact Resistance 0.3 mW (measured by cross-wire method with 200 gram load
  • Deposit weight for 2.5 microns 31.6 mg/in 2 (4.9 mg/cm2) (100 micro inches)
