example usage 1

The pen plating kit is built around our MF Rectifier. This is a multi-function rectifier and so can be used for brush and tank as well as pen plating. For a guide on how to set up your MF Rectifier for pen plating,please click HERE.

example usage 2

Our Pen Plating Kit is ideal for small gold and silver plating jobs on jewellery. We’ve included two of our fibre nibs as well, for rhodium pen plating  and gold pen plating on to difficult to place alloys such as chrome, surgical steel and dental alloys using our Gold Strike Pen. To order our rhodium pen plating solution, please go to our special orders page. You can see a guide HERE in our Electroplating Manual on pen plating. This kit (or any of our other kits, equipment or solutions) is not suitable for plating on to aluminium or titanium and therefore can’t be used to plate iPhones and other similar products.

example usage 3

To clean your Fibre Nib, simply hold it under running water for a minute or so.

example usage 4

The plating pen features a removable and exchangeable platinum electrode. This allows you to properly clean your plating pen after use and before storage. It also delivers the flexibility to choose between our range of pen electrodes in silver, copper, nickel and carbon, matching it according to the solution you’re intending to use.

example usage 5

Our Pen Plating Clip Tray connects to the MF Rectifier and frees up one of your hands for presicion pen plating. It also catches any run off from your pen plating solution, allowing you to use these drips again on your plating job. Full details of the clip tray can be seen HERE.
