Could this be used on small hardware and would it hold up to the hardware being used?

Asked by: Mayhem14
This kit is a great option for small hardware. Since you are physically putting a thin layer of metal on the parts the finish will be durable.

Can this process be used to gold plate the rim of a wine glass?

Asked by: Curious453
We would not be able to recommend this on a wine glass as none of our products have been designed or tested by the FDA for use around food.

How is the durability of this plating, i have a molder bed that the wood has worn through the chrome in a small place would it hold up to friction?

Asked by: David
Since this is a physical plating process it would have excellent abrasion resistance. With that said though we have never tested for long term abrasion.

Can I use this on white gold to give it back its silver color as it has faded a tad yellow over time. 

Asked by: Tonanzith
While this will give you a new clean surface it isn't by any means the same process used to clean up white gold noir have we ever tested this product for constant skin contact.
