Cambridge Hybrid ™ Rollerball and Fountain Pen Kits
The Cambridge Hybrid™ Pen. Probably the highest quality pen kit on the market. Available in Rollerball and Fountain Styles. The distinctive design and only the best finishes make this a premium pen kit. The Cambridge Hybrid™ Pen is available in a Rollerball which includes a premium Schmidt ceramic refill and a Fountain Pen which includes a quality nib and both the ink converter/pump and ink cartridge. The two-tube pen kit is easy to turn with straight lines and assembly is also very simple. The plating on this gives it a very expensive look and provides the pen maker with confidence that their pen contains the best quality platings for a lifetime of wear. The platings are made from the most robust materials and applied with state of the art processes.
All gold plating used on these pen kits is 24K "upgrade gold". Upgrade means that the parts are plated using the rack method and that small amounts of cobalt or palladium are added to the plating chemicals. This enhances the durability of the gold plating. The tumbled method, which is not used on the kits we sell, produces an inferior gold plating and is less costly.
This is an extremely durable plating. Under normal use this plating should hold up for many years.
This method produces the most durable plating. This process is called PVD (particle vapor deposition). Titanium nitride matched to the color of the gold is molecularly bonded to the part and then 24K gold is bonded (sputtered) on the part to achieve a color match other gold parts on the kits. The parts are again re-plated after this. The final result is that the parts will virtually never wear. The manufacturer we use pioneered this process for writing instruments and are not aware of another company currently using this exact process.
This is a very durable hard plating. The manufacturer uses real platinum rather then rhodium and it should be expected to hold up under normal use for many years.
Titanium oxide is molecularly bonded (PVD) to the parts. This plating is unbelievably hard and durable. It will last for many, many years.
