Gold Plating

This picture shows some plated products.

We plate with all sorts of metals, but here is something particularly interesting about gold. Do you know that gold is an efficient thermal barrier and can be used in furnaces to improve efficiency and in racing cars to keep them cool? A layer only a few microns thick is all that is needed.
