Our Black Nickel Plating Kits are ideal for DIY enthusiasts, car and motorbike restorers who are looking to finish 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 but will give best results when plated on top of a polished surface or our replica chrome. This kit is designed to easily produce a shiny, chrome-like but black finish. The deepness of the black can be varied with the thickness of plate and current applied.
The Ultimate versions of 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 the solution to remove soils such as grease, oils and rust preventetives. If using electrolytically, it can be used to remove rust. Guides on how to do both are included in the kit. The acid pickle is also a cleaner but is vital to preparing the metal 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.
