Short Swab

Short Swab Watch Our Video

The short swab is half the length of the standard swab and therefore ideal for one off plating jobs such as rings. Its reduced size means it holds less plating solution and so is more economical.
Our swabs will last a long time if thoroughly rinsed under running water after each use.

Its shorter length means the Short Swab can get into smaller spaces more easily (such as the inside of rings) and uses up less plating solution – ideal for carrying out tests where you only need to use the minimum of solution.
