Nickel plating kits
Electroplate directly on steel, iron, brass, bronze, gunmetal, copper also on welded, silver soldered and brazed joints.
The Nickel plating process allows a deposit of .001" (25 micron) per hour
These kits are a scaled down version of a commercial Nickel plating plant, the true industrial Nickel plating process at your finger tips. A lasting professional, decorative water resistant matt or lustrous finish can be acheived without any previous experience.
Nickel plating can be used to reclaim worn out or over machined surfaces.
From a rusted component to a Nickel plated lasting showpiece in three hours.
For decorative work Nickel plating will range from 1/2 hour up to 3 hours according to the thickness of the Nickel plate required. The plating solution is reusable. 1kg of the Nickel salts (as supplied in the workshop kit) will last for 0ver 13,000 sq cm of .001 (25 micron) Nickel plating without the need to replenish or replace. The salts will store for many years in liquid or solid form. Nickel plating can be carried out at any temperature from 15 degC up to 35 degC, although slightly better results are obtained at 24degC or higher.
The comprehensive instructions supplied with each Nickel plating kit will guide you through all the stages of the plating process from the initial preparation of the parts to be Nickel plated through to the finished product with hints and tips to get the very best from your kit.
The Nickel plating process can be used as a substitute for Zinc or Cadmium plating. The finish is dictated by the preparation. For a matt finish wire brushins is sufficient. If the surfaces are polished prior to being electroplated they can be buffed up to acheive the beautiful sheen of the original.
