This copper plating solution is great for plating on non-conductive materials. It plates bright and levels out the plating surface. PP Copper also plates very well onto brass and pewter.
When plating very large areas or building up shiny surfaces onto matt surfaces, we advise mixing with PP Stabiliser Powder to supress tarnishing.
