RHODUNA® Alloys are economically attractive

Umicore RHODUNA® alloys for perfect black and white rhodium surfaces are also economically attractive due to the high rhodium price.

In just three years, the price of rhodium has increased to well about 1500% of its value in mid-2016. High demand has made rhodium the most expensive precious metal of all. Producers of decorative items were especially hit hard by these prices.

That’s why we offer three alternative rhodium electrolytes, which are significantly more economically attractive due to their composition.
