Pallega® blend Ru

Mirror bright white palladium alloy deposits

Pallega® blend Ru process is a weak alkaline electrolyte from which bright, decorative white levelled alloy layers can be deposited. Pallega blend Ru has been formulated to get crack free and non-porous layers. A typical field of application is the watch, bijou and optical frame production. Pallega® blend Ru enables deposits of thicknesses up to 1,5 microns with mirror bright finish, that is the reason why it can be used as an excellent corrosion protective nickel substitute.

Properties & Benefits

  • White colored alloy of Pd-Ru
  • Alloy composition Pd-Ru approx. 50/50 – 70/30
  • Mirror bright up to 1,5 μ
  • RoHS and CLEAR-complient
  • Superior corrosion resistance
  • Higher hardness than pure palladium therefore higher abrasion resistance
  • Easy thickness measurement because neither Pd nor Ru are components of the base material
  • Strongly reduced losses through drag out due to low palladium content
  • L* = 84,8, a = +1, b = +4,9
