example usage 1

Our Nickel Brush Plating Solution is ideal for plating a barrier layer between layers of gold plate and copper and copper containing alloys such as brass. This makes it especially useful when plating with our PP Copper Brush Plating Solution on to non-conductive surfaces such as plastic, where the final layer will be gold plate. If it is to be used as a barrier layer, please plate to at least 2 microns. For full, illustrated instructions for brush plating barrier layers of nickel on to plastic, please click HERE for our Electroplating Manual. An alternative barrier layer could be our white bronze or our Palladium Brush or Tank solution.
