“ProPlate Uses Pure Platinum and Gold in Additive Plating Process”​

“ProPlate (Anoka, Minnesota) uses pure platinum or gold with its additive plating process, rather than using a machining process and various methods of limited installation for rigid stainless steel or platinum-iridium alloys as markers and electrodes. In this scenario, the company says electroplating has a clear advantage. Instead of subtractive machining followed by an installation process
