Is gold difficult to maintain? Gold requires very little maintenance at all. Gold will not tarnish, rust or corrode. Just wash with a gentle solution of soap and water.

How can I tell if a conductive surface is chrome, aluminum, or stainless steel? Most silver colored, metallic (conductive), surfaces encountered in everyday use are either chrome, stainless steel, aluminum, nickel, zinc or silver.

What type of material CANNOT be gold plated? We cannot gold plate non-conductive materials such as glass, plastic, wood, etc. However, if the non-conductive base already has an existing metallic coating, it can sometimes be plated. For example; Many of the chrome/plastic grilles in automobiles can be gold plated.

Does an automobile emblem have to be removed before it can be gold plated? Not usually and the plating solutions will not affect most car finishes.

Why is aluminum so difficult to plate? Aluminum is a very reactive metal that oxidizes within seconds of coming into contact with the air.
