Adding an amount of prepared PP Stabiliser to our PP Copper helps you to quickly build up thick layers of copper on most non-conductive surfaces. For a link to instructions on how to mix the required amount, please click on the blue tab above marked ‘Manual’.
HS Code: 3824 99 70
To make stabiliser you need to mix it with deionised water. For instructions on how to do this please click HERE for step-by-step instructions in our Electroplating Manual.
Once prepared, the PP Stabiliser solution should be added to our PP Copper Solution for plating on non-conductive surfaces.
When prepared and then added to PP Copper, increases this plating solution’s resistance to tarnishing and greatly improves plating efficiency.
Building up thick layers of copper, for example when plating non-conductive surfaces
PP Stabiliser has been developed by Spa Plating to supress tarnishing in our product, PP Copper. PP Copper is most frequently used for building layers of shiny copper on non-conductive surfaces such as plastic, shell and glass.
Although our PP Copper plates a beautifully smooth and lustrous layer it can, due to its reactivity, quickly become tarnished.
PP Stabiliser not only suppresses tarnishing but also brightens the layer of copper plate.
It must be made fresh and used within one week.
The ratio for mixing the PP Stabilising Powder with the deionised water is given in stage 3 of mixing process.
2. Measuring out the right amount of PP Stabiliser
Measure out the right amount of PP Stabiliser by levelling off a heaped spatula full with a ruler or plastic card.
3. PP Stabiliser into beaker
Place the Stabilser into the 60ml beaker.
4. Measuring deionised water
Measure out 8ml of deionised water and add it to the Stabiliser in the beaker.
5. Mixing water and PP Stabiliser
Give the beaker a brisk shake until the Stabiliser is completely dissolved
6. Labelling beaker
Once the water and the powder are completely combined, label the beaker clearly with the date it was mixed. The contents can now be added to our PP Copper at a ratio of 1:10 so the amount of stabiliser prepared above should be enough for about 100ml of PP Copper.
