This Platinum Pen Plating Solution contains 25 grams of platinum per litre and has been designed specifically for pen plating. It plates a hard-wearing, bright layer of platinum. Ideal for both decorative and functional purposes. When plating on to copper or brass, pre-plate with a thick layer of gold, silver or nickel.
You will need to use our fibre nibs with this solution. Standard nibs are not suitable for plating platinum. This plating solution can be used with our Battery Powered Plating Pen or our Plating pen with our MF Rectifier, links to which can be found below in the ‘Related Products’ section.

  • The plating rate increases considerably between 25 and 35 °C. Try to position your work on a
    warm surface. You could also use an infrared lamp as a form of heating.
  • Higher voltages give greater plating rates, however more spray is produced and a mist mask is recommended.
  • Plating rates are calculated over a sample area which is permanently covered by swab.
  • Will plate directly onto freshly prepared nickel or stainless steel.
