Eppner Laser Gold: The Preferred Finish for the Oscars and NASA Spacecraft
NEW YORK, — /PRNewswire/ — When top organizations are thinking about how gold can help enhance a project, they are turning to Laser Gold© to solve thermal control problems and enhance performance.
Whether it be NASA’s desire for 99% infrared reflectivity or the Oscars® need to make the finish on these historic statuettes more rugged, they are all turning to Epner Technology’s Laser Gold electro-plating process.
NASA was the first to appreciate the innovation Epner Technology brought to gold plating.
The space agency required and ultra-pure 24 karat gold to achieve the highest infrared reflectivity. At the same time the coating had to be rugged enough to permit physical cleaning.
The scientists at Epner Technology modified an electrochemical process in such a way that the gold atoms in the deposit were packed more tightly than ordinary plating.
And thus Laser Gold was born; the reflectivity of a pure gold combined with the durability of a coating three times harder than any other 24 karat gold. Continue reading
