IP (Ion Plating) Gold Plating is one of the newest surface coating procedures and also the most advanced till date. It involves adding a titanium nitride layer to the base metal, in a vapor form. The end result is a harder and more durable surface which offers greater brightness and sheen than the traditional methods of plating.
In fact, experiments conducted to gauge the durability of ion plating have shown that IP plated surfaces are five to eight times more durable and resilient to corrosion and wear as compared to surfaces obtained through other plating processes.
