REPLICA CHROME PLATING KIT
 
 
Ideal for DIY enthusiasts, car and motorcycle restorers.
 
Now includes Dry Acid Pickle and GP1 Alkaline cleaner 

With this kit you will find it easy to get a bright mirror like finish with a hint of daylight just like chrome but without the problems associated with chrome plating.  Replica Chrome will also give outstanding protection against corrosion.  It eliminates the need for a two step program like chrome.

This is the most comprehensive kit of its type on the market, other than a power supply, we include everything you need to get started

The kit is easy to use as it is based on a nickel alloy. The finish is bright like chrome, keeps its shine like chrome and is harder than nickel.  You can easily get outstanding results on various metals including steel, iron, brass, copper and if used in conjunction with the correct metallic spray it can also plate non metalic items! You can also plate on aluminium if used in conjunction with zincate. 
 
Setting up and getting started is easy. The plating process is quite quick with a typical 10 micron coating taking about 25 minutes. 

This kit comes with a Replica Chrome electroplating guide. This detailed guide contains all the information you need to get great results.

There is also no need for an expensive power supply as we will show you how to use a 12v car battery or battery charger in conjunction with our current controller.

Included in the kit are:

  • 1.65kg Replica Chrome Electrolyte chemicals (will make 5 litres)
  • 1 x 230ml Replica Chrome brightener
  • 1 x 30ml Replica Chrome maintenance

This kit will replica chrome plate numerous items. Exactly how many is hard to say as it depends on the thickness of the plating but we include twice the amount of replica chrome that you will find in our competitors kits and at a fraction of the price.  Compared to other copy chrome kits on the market, we are confident that you will not find a better deal.
