BLACK NICKEL PLATING will poduce a uniform black finish. It is ideal for use in antique finishing on copper and its alloys and for a black finish on bright nickel.
BLACK NICKEL PLATING KIT
Our BLACK Nickel plating kits are designed to provide a commercial quality finish on a miniature scale, in approx. 1 to 3 minutes. The finish is applied as a final treatment.
All our chemicals are pre-measured, so all you have to do is to add distilled water. We have tried to keep the processes as simple as possible and have standardized everything wherever we can.
The kit will plate onto steel, copper, bronze, brass, activated nickel, Flash Copper™, or Bright Acid Copper. This system is too acidic for pot metal, which should be plated first in Flash Copper™.
Plate a beautiful black nickel layer onto most metals.
Great for antique finishing and decorative items.
By buffing the base material before black nickel plating, you can achieve a very high quality finish.
All instructions and operating procedures are currently as an insert to the Complete Plating Manual.
The solution is virtually permanent. No waste chemicals or dangerous fumes are produced.
