SKU: REC-BR1

 

The G.S.P Recruit BR1 Brush Plating / Electroplating Kit will allow you to effortlessly brush plate over a wide variety of metals, with no limit on the size of objects that can be plated. The process is a breeze and includes robust and reliable equipment which is suitable for heavy use.

The kit can also be expanded easily into a full tank plating set-up, we have even included a few tank chemicals: our G.S.P AllyCu Solution and G.S.P Anodise Stripper to get you started.

Alternatively, if you wish to plate plastics and other non-conductive surfaces, this kit can be expanded for electroforming due to the inclusion of our 10A SmartAmp Machine, and its integrated plating technology. The Recruit BR1 contains gold, silver, nickel, and copper, which allows you to plate most metal surfaces to a high standard.

As a bonus, the Recruit BR1 also gives you a head-start with aluminium plating, and although you will require an additional Nickel Tank Conversion Kit and 1 litre of our G.S.P Nickel Plating Solution (sold separately), we have included all of the prep chemicals needed for aluminium in this kit!

This kit comes complete with our 5 Point Support Package and is an excellent choice.

Brush Plating

Here is a brief overview of the brush plating process:

Step 1: Clean / polish the item to be plated.

Step 2: If the item is chrome plated, strip the chrome with G.S.P Chrome Stripper which takes between 1-15 minutes and then rinse. If the item is nickel or stainless steel, brush over with the appropriate activator for a few seconds and then rinse.

Step 3: Brush the gold or other metal solution of your choice over and over, building up thickness as you go. Do this for between 2-20 minutes depending on the size of the item and then rinse / dry.

Step 4: Rub G.S.P Gold Polish over the item and then wipe off to bring out the final shine.

Please note: You do not always apply precious metals directly over the original substrate, it depends on what that metal is.

Examples include - copper would need to be plated with G.S.P Nickel Plating Solution first, this would be followed by using G.S.P Nickel Activator, then the piece could be gold plated.

Brass would be plated with G.S.P Copper Strike, then with G.S.P Nickel Plating Solution, followed by G.S.P Nickel Activator and the piece could then be gold-plated.
