Our Bright Nickel Plating Kits are ideal for DIY enthusiasts, car and motorbike restorers who are looking to achieve a mirror finish on their items with a bright nickel coating that has excellent corrosion resistance. The kit is easy to use and gives outstanding results on various metals including steel, iron, brass, copper.
This kit is designed to easily produce a shiny, polished finish. The polished finish is not dissimilar in appearance to chrome but with a slightly different hue. As with all types of plating the best results are obtained by plating onto a very shiny base metal.
This kit includes two cleaning chemicals, our own Alkaline Cleaner formulation and an Acid Pickle. The GP1 Alkaline Cleaner can be used two ways: as a soak cleaner or an electrolytic cleaner. Using it as a soak cleaner, you would submerse you part in hot solution to remove soils such as grease, oils and rust preventatives. If using it as an electro cleaner, it can be used to remove rust and paint etc. Guides on how to do both are included in the kit. The acid pickle is also a cleaner but is vital to prepare the metal surface well before plating. Submersing your item in the acid pickle removes some soils but more importantly slightly etches the surface, removing any oxides, giving a pristine surface ready for plating.
