Plastic Brush Plating Kit
Start gold and silver brush plating now on plastic, wood, glass… almost any non-conductive surface.
A note on our kits;
Every item in our electroplating kits
- makes an important contribution to the overall success of the plating process
- has been thoroughly tested to ensure it performs its job at the highest level in the overall electroplating process
- is either made in-house or has been carefully sourced from our trusted suppliers
These factors ensure consistent, top quality plating results for a fair price.
|Key Kit Contents||Features||Used For|
|Conductive Ink (hi-grade)||just brush on,no spraying needed. Very economical; 1 gram will coat surface area of 250cm2 – that’s roughly the equivalent of 5 golf balls.||Making virtually any solid surface electrically conductive and therefore able to be plated eg. plastic, glass, wood, plaster, stone, fibre glass|
|PP Copper Brush Plating Solution||Plates bright and quickly and effectively metalises the non-metal surface.||Plating the initial layer of copper on the cured conductive ink.|
|Nickel Brush Plating Solution||Plate to at least a 2 microns thickness.
Once plated can be abraded to produce a scratched or ‘brush’ finish.
Use a nickel electrode.
|Plating a barrier layer on copper when gold plating.|
|Power Rectifier||Fully variable voltage between 3 and 15 volts. Maximum constant current output of 25 amps||Quickly building up a substantial layer of copper plate over the conductive ink thus metalising the surface|
|Conductor Strips||Developed specifically for this process – makes electrical contact with work without risk of damaging conductive Ink layer||Dramatically increasing the surface area of electrical contact with the work and therefore speeding up plating times|
|Thermometer||Clear, easy to read display, safe to use and takes up very little room||Calibrating fan ovens to ensure the correct temperature for curing Conductive Ink|
|Carbon electrodes x2
Platinum electrode x 1
|Carbon: Economic option.Platinum: High quality long lasting electrode – Made from platinum plated titanium|
|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 money clearing burns or other marks produced during plating – all you have to do is rinse and carry on plating|
|Autosol||The polish that provides the greatest degree of cut that we sell.||Great for getting rid of defects in the base material and polishing back any defects in thick layers of copper plate before further layers of plate. If you intend to plate after using Autosol, you will need to go through the full cleaning process again.|
|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|
