High-purity nickel anode with anode bag for use when nickel plating in a tank. This anode renews the nickel content which is depleted from your nickel plating solution during the plating process. The inclusion of the high-quality anode bag results in an ultra-smooth plate and the titanium wire on which the nickel rounds are threaded, will not contaminate your solution.
This product consists of:
5 x high-purity nickel rounds (pre-threaded onto titanium wire)
1 x high-quality anode bag
Overview of use
Instructions for use:
Your nickel anode comes pre-threaded on titanium wire and in an anode bag. The bag sits on the inside wall of the tank and your red plating lead (positive) with crocodile clip, bites onto the protruding titanium wire. For deeper tanks, you can use plastic clips to hold the anode bag in place off the floor. Always ensure that the water line never goes above the bag opening.
These anodes are sacrificial, meaning that they will slowly dissolve through use. When the anodes become sufficiently depleted, they will need replacing.
If you wish to clean the anode bags, take care in removing from the tank to ensure that none of the contents spill out into your solution. Rinse the bags gently in de-ionised water.
Once an anode bag has been used in the nickel solution, it cannot be used in any other type of solution.
Nickel tank plating anode.
For use in nickel tank plating, the anode replenishes nickel content which is drawn from your solution during plating.
Suitable for use with all Gold Solutions Plating chemicals?
No, use with G.S.P Nickel Plating Solution only.
Part of Mirror Tech System?
Must be used with the supplied anode bags and threaded with titanium wire (also supplied). Do NOT use copper wire. The Nickel Anode is sacrificial, will dissolve over time when using to plate and will need replacing.
