It is important to note that the actual amount of metal deposited by the system is a product of time, the total current flowing through the solution, and bath efficiency; also called the cathode efficiency.
Due to the intrinsically higher cathode efficiency of the Genesis process when compared to competitive processes, carbonate build-up has less of a detrimental effect on plating speed.
Cathode efficiency of 25% is the norm for Ankor 1127 and it holds at this level throughout its life.
