Our G.S.P Electrocleaner is used in almost all plating situations. Invisible traces of grease exist on the surface of all objects, no matter how clean they appear to be, and these will cause undesirable patterns in the final finish of the plate. Our Electrocleaner cuts through all traces of grease, leaving you with an uncontaminated, spotless surface on which to proceed to the next step in the plating process, ensuring great results. This solution is effective when brush or tank plating and will result in an item that will pass the water break test.
For optimum performance, use with our G.S.P Brush Plating Probes or 316 Stainless Steel Flat Tank Plating Anodes.
Please note: it is best to use the G.S.P Electrocleaner not only at the start of a job, but also after any activating stages that may be involved.

If you are electrocleaning aluminium, then 5 minutes is normal. This may turn the aluminium black or white.
If your plating project involves activation of any kind, at any point, then each activation needs to be followed by electrocleaning for 1 minute before proceeding to the next step.
If electrocleaning via brush plating, be sure to be thorough, going over and over the item. For reference, an object the size of a mobile phone should be electrocleaned for 5 minutes.
