Our brush plating kits use the same principles of electrodeposition as our tank plating kits, however, instead of the electrolyte being contained in a tank, it is contained within the tip of the brush. Brush plating kits are ideal for smaller, more intricate objects or very large objects that only require a small repair in a specific area of wear. You can also turn our brush plating kits into miniature tank plating kits but emptying the solution into a small container and using the wand as a static anode.
Our Gold, Silver, Nickel Brush Plating Kits are comprehensive kits that designed to be used for either a flash plate coating for decorative parts or for larger items with small patches of restoration. It is ideal for DIY enthusiasts, antique restorers, jewellers and model makers who are looking to either restore objects or to achieve an excellent finish with ease and at a low cost. This kit is very easy to use and gives outstanding results on various metals including steel, iron, brass, nickel, replica chrome, stainless steel and copper.
With the addition of nickel brush plating solution to the kit, you can get the very best results from the subsequent silver or gold plating. Using the nickel brush plating solution first will make the surface of the metal even smoother, giving a better finish for the following silver plate. It will also stop any bleed through, especially if plating onto copper or brass and will also enhance corrosion resistance when plating onto steel and iron.
Getting started is easy, the plating process can be very quick. A decorative finish is usually done over nickel and takes just a few minutes. Thicker nickel plating directly onto steel takes a bit longer, however, a typical plate of 3.6 micron thickness takes about 15 minutes to apply on small items. The kit contains enough solution to plate up to 15,000 cm2.
