Sealing Lacquer

This lacquer is ideal for sealing porous surfaces in preparation for electroforming or electroplating. It can provide an adherent base for the Conductive Ink (hi-grade).

4. Remove the item from the lacquer and clip it into the pen plating clip tray. Gently shake off any excess lacquer onto the tissue. Allow the laquer to dry before dipping again. If the items is quite porous, you may need to dip 2-3 times. The used lacquer must be safely stored in a separate screw top, all-plastic beaker. We don’t advise pouring the lacquer back into its container, as it may contain particles dislodged from the surface of the item you’ve just dipped. Once you’ve poured the excess lacquer into its storing beaker, you can wrap the empty dipping beaker in a plastic bag to use next time.
