PDO Flat Copper Tank Anode
Using the correct type of copper anodes when electroplating and electroforming is very important. The type of copper used in our anodes, combined with the high-quality anode bags, results in an ultra-smooth plate that perfectly complements our G.S.P Electroforming Copper.
Our PDO Copper Anode set consists of:
1 x set of 2 PDO Flat Copper Tank Anodes
2 x high-quality anode bags
Please note: these copper anodes are for use with G.S.P Copper Strike Solution and G.S.P Electroforming Copper Plating Solution only.
Overview of use
Instructions for use:
Anodes come pre-inserted in their anode bags. Rest against the inside of tank wall and attach red lead (positive) by crocodile clip to the anode inside the bag. Plastic clips can be used to hold the anode bags in place in deeper tanks so that they are not sitting on the floor. Always ensure that the water line does not go above the bag opening. To use 2 anodes in a tank, either connect with copper wire using the predrilled holes or use a spare red (positive) plating lead with crocodile clips on each end.
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 with a particular type of copper solution, it cannot be used with any other type of copper solution.
Anode for copper plating, copper strike and electroforming.
Use during copper strike prep stage and copper plating / electroforming stage of plating. The anode replenishes copper content which is drawn from your solution during plating.
Suitable for use with all Gold Solutions Plating chemicals?
No, use with G.S.P Copper Strike and G.S.P Electroforming Copper only.
Part of Mirror Tech System?
Must be used with the supplied anode bags. The PDO Copper Tank Anode is sacrificial, will dissolve over time when using to plate and will need replacing.
