HS Code: 3824 99 70

Copper Strike Brush Plating Solution delivers all the benefits of an industry standard cyanide copper solution but without the toxic content.
As a key layer it is ideal for plating on to zinc and steel. Subsequent thicker and brighter layers of copper can be built up with PP Copper.
It plates quite well when applied over a zincated aluminium surface which could be of practical use when conforming to standard required for the plating of aluminium busbars.
We do not recommend this product for plating decorative layers on aluminium articles such as iPhones and other aluminium mobile devices.
