This kit gives outstanding results Plating Directly onto Pot Metal, Steel, Zinc, Brass, Zincated Aluminium, Electroless Nickel, Stainless Steel and Copper.

For the restorer, copper plating must be one of the most useful repair tools there is.

By applying layers of copper, and buffing between applications, an incredibly smooth surface can be quickly built up, covering scratches and minor pits caused by corrosion.

You can also use solder on top of the copper plate to fill even the deepest pits and scratches, before buffing and a final copper, nickel or replica chrome plate.

Alkaline Copper produces a softer and more ductile deposit than cyanide or acid copper. The soft deposit imparts improved adhesion and corrosion resistance and greatly improved resistance to thermal shock.

  • Removes the need for cyanide strike coats
  • Removes the need for Pot Metal Primer on Zinc
  • Removes the need for Stainless Steel Activator
  • Removes the need for Nickel Strike on Steel prior to copper plating
  • Increases the bond of Bright Acid Copper, Nickel and Replica Chrome to all substrates

Alkaline Copper is simple and inexpensive to use because it replenishes the copper in solution by dissolving the copper anode

The size and scope of the items plated are  limited only by the size and shape of the tank you use for plating.
