White Bronze Mixer
When mixed with Copper Plating Solution, White Bronze Mixer produces a white plate that can serve as a tarnish-resistantl decorative layer or a barrier layer when plating gold onto copper or its alloys. We do not recommend using white bronze on items of complex shape or with recesses.
Recommended electrode – carbon.
|When mixed with our Copper Plating Solution to create white bronze, can be used as a replacement for nickel to comply with EU legislation and avoid nickel allergy||Plating any items that will be handled or otherwise come into regular contact with the skin, for example jewellery, lighters and musical instruments|
|Non-tarnish and silver-like in appearance||Can be used as a low-cost, tarnish resistant alternative to silver plate for example when repairing musical instruments or up-cycling silver plated antiques|
|Effective as a barrier layer||Can be used for plating on non-conductive surfaces; makes an excellent barrier layer between copper/brass and gold – ideal for plating on non-conductive surfaces|
|Base coat||Plating an excellent undercoat for black chrome and when plating silver onto pewter, Britannia metal or other high-tin alloys.|
