Our Replica Chrome Plating Kits are ideal for DIY enthusiasts, car and motorbike restorers who are looking to achieve a safe, chromium-free, mirror finish with excellent corrosion resistance.
The kit is easy to use and safer than true chrome as it is based on a nickel alloy. The finish is bright and incredibly like chrome, it keeps its shine like chrome and is harder than nickel. You can easily get outstanding results on various metals including steel, iron, brass, copper. You can also plate on aluminium if used in conjunction with zincate.
The various 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 preventatives. If using it as an electro cleaner, 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.
