Benefits
Palladium is a naturally intensely bright white metal that gives a unique lustre to decorative pieces.

Palladium is used to electroplate electronic contacts and components due to its high conductivity, hardness, strength and durability. It is more cost effective than gold and is particularly useful to prevent diffusion at copper-gold junctures and where post-plate firing is required.
