Product Description

Our Zinc Plating  kit  is ideal for any classic car or motorbike restoration project, where plating is required to finish, protect and enhance components. The kit is ideal for plating items such as nuts, bolts and brackets. Although the zinc plating kit is primarily used on steel parts, it can also be used on iron, brass and copper.

The zinc plating kit is based on the commercial electroplating system we use for our own restoration projects here at Classic Plating. The  zinc plating kit gives professional results for the DIY enthusiast. These kits make it practical to restore and protect the myriad of smaller parts that are often left unloved during a restoration project because of the expense involved.

With care, and advice where needed, any DIY enthusiast or restorer using one of our kits with the comprehensive instruction manual, can produce quality results.

Cleaning

The part to be plated must be spotless to get a good finish. Excessive rust, dirt and grease can be removed with a wire brush or by sand blasting. We have found electrolytic cleaning gives the best results.

After cleaning the part, the Alkaline Degreaser is used to clean the last traces of grease  and dirt while the Acid Pickle activates the surface ready for plating. Both are essential to prepare the surface prior to plating and can be used to remove rust. Further details are included in the Zinc Plating Kit manual.

Passivates

The zinc plating kit also contains two passivates.

Dip the part in a passivate solution for 30 seconds, immediately after plating for the desired finish and enhanced protection against corrosion.

Use the Yellow/Gold passivate for a gold finish with outstanding corrosion protection characteristics.

Use the Clear/blue passivate for a bright silver finish or if left longer  for a blue sheen finish. Both finishes provide long lasting corrosion protection.

Black and Olive Drab passivates are available as optional extras.
