G.S.P AllyCu Zincate Solution, 5 litre bottle

G.S.P AllyCu Zincate Solution

(Excl. tax)
* Bottle Size:


Our G.S.P AllyCu Zincate Solution is necessary for successful plating over aluminium, as this requires several steps. The solution should be used at the beginning of the plating process when working with this aluminium. It deposits a coating of zinc, preparing the aluminium for nickel plating (the stage prior to the application of your chosen metal finish such as gold or silver).

Watch our demonstration video: How to Plate Aluminium to learn how to use G.S.P AllyCu Zincate Solution.


Please note: this solution is not suited to brush plating and should be used with kits in our G.S.P Prodigy and G.S.P Recruit ranges.

Although this product requires no power, all other stages in the process of plating over aluminium require a suitable plating machine and suitable plating solutions. Please enquire with us for more information if you are unsure which other solutions/equipment you require to complete the full job.
