How to prepare PP Stabiliser for our PP Copper Plating Solution

PP Stabiliser has been developed by Spa Plating to supress tarnishing in our product, PP Copper. PP Copper is most frequently used for building layers of shiny copper on non-conductive surfaces such as plastic, shell and glass.
Although our PP Copper plates a beautifully smooth and lustrous layer it can, due to its reactivity, quickly become tarnished.
PP Stabiliser not only suppresses tarnishing but also brightens the layer of copper plate.
It must be made fresh and used within one week.
The ratio for mixing the PP Stabilising Powder with the deionised water is given in stage 3 of mixing process.
