Read This Article From Walnecks Cycle Trader About Our Nickel Kit
Our nickel plating kits are designed to provide a commercial quality finish on a miniature scale, in approx. 20 minutes. The finish can be applied as a final treatment, requiring VERY LITTLE buffing to obtain a high shine, or as a base for chrome plating.
Nickel plate has a very slight yellow color to it, but in many applications, if polished, it can double as a chrome plate.
All our chemicals are pre-weighed, 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, zincated aluminum, activated nickel, activated Stainless, Flash Copper™, or Bright Acid Copper. This system is too acidic for pot metal, which should be plated first in Flash Copper™.
Nickel plate may also be applied over a copper plate, and copper plate will adhere to the nickel. We suggest you apply copper plate to any areas with large scratches or pits, repair them using our solder-it pastes and then nickel plate them. By buffing the copper plate before nickel plating, you can achieve a very high quality finish, similar to 'Show Chrome". If this nickel finish is then chrome plated, the part will be 'Show Chrome'.
All instructions and operating procedures are detailed in the Complete Plating Manual. Each anode will plate about 32 sq. ft of surface area at 0.0005" before it needs to be replaced. The solution is virtually permanent. No waste chemicals or dangerous fumes are produced.
