example usage 5

In some cases electrocleaning is the only safe way of preparing the surface for plating. Here the surface of a silver earring has been stopped out with red nail varnish, ready for selective plating. Electrocleaning in a tank avoids the risk of removing the stop out, which manual cleaning with MPU represents.
