Swabs
Features Used for
Made from materials best suited to brush plating – manufacture and design exclusive to Spa Plating Holds just the right amount of plating solution, which reduces wastage and saves time
Hard wearing yet soft and absorbent – very economical Each swab can be re-used many times – just rinse thoroughly between plating stages. Can be used with most of our plating solutions apart from rhodium and platinum, which need our S-Type Swabs

Cleaning and finishing compounds 

MPU One stage cleaning and activating product
Can be used during the plating process without having to re-electroclean and activate
For cleaning and activating in one stage, can replace the ActiClean stage – saves time and moneyClearing burns or other marks produced during plating – all you have to do is rinse and carry on plating
MetaSeal Non-abrasiveSpecial formulation Bringing out the final lustre of your work and cuts out the hard work associated with final finishingSeals in the shine and slows tarnishing

 Thickener

Features Used for
Creates a gel when mixed with our plating solutions Resulting gel helps prevent the plating solution running off the work. This is particularly useful when you are working in-situ, for example plating bathroom taps or an architectural feature of a building, where it is impossible to catch the run-off in the normal drip trays

 Conductor Strip

Features Used for
Greatly increases surface contact and therefore conductivity with work Significantly increases plating speeds
Eliminates making burn marks and scratches caused by using crocodile clip by itself Making contact with work on any part of surface you’re plating – whether visible or not
Gentle way of making electrical contact with surface of your work Essential for plating on Conductive Ink (hi-grade) – doesn’t damage its delicate surface
