Here at Gateros Plating we have been doing our own plating on motorcycle restoration projects for more than ten years. We were so successful at doing our own plating that we decided to produce home plating kits for other restorers and enthusiasts to use.

Our philosophy is to produce high quality products at a very reasonable price, making our kits affordable for even the smallest of projects.

All our kits are based on the same systems that commercial electroplaters use so we are confident that the results from our kits are always of a high standard.

We supply a comprehensive, easy to understand guide with each kit. This guide covers all aspects of plating from setting up the tank and preparing the items for plating through to the finished article. As one of our customers said, “the plating kit is idiot proof even I can use it”.

We also give guidance on how to keep the electrolyte in tiptop condition so you can use it over and over again, making our kits even more economical. Should the need for replacement chemicals or anodes arise we can supply these at a very reasonable price.

If you require larger volume kits or want to set up a complete plating system we can tailor make kits and systems to your needs.

Due to our experience in all types of plating, we feel that we are uniquely placed to supply not only plating kits but also offer advice on all aspects of home plating and finishing. Please feel free to contact us with your questions and queries.
