G.S.P Recruit BR2 Brush Plating / Electroplating / Electroforming Kit

(Excl. tax)


The G.S.P Recruit BR2 Kit is a great electroforming starter kit for gold plating. It comes complete with everything you need to tank electroform non-conductive items and then apply the 24K gold finish via brush plating.

Brush plating the gold is effortless and can be performed on 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 Recruit BR2 utilises our Mirror-Tech System™, producing a mirror-shine, straight out of the tank, with no need for buffing or polishing. This is thanks to the 10A SmartAmp Machine with integrated plating technology, which achieves this flawless finish on items up to the size of 274cm2.

As a bonus, with the simple addition of 1 litre of our G.S.P 24K Gold Plating Solution or G.S.P Tank Gold Plating Solution (sold separately), you will have a complete tank-only process from plastic to gold. The kit comes with gold solution as standard but is compatible with all precious metals, just browse our selection of chemicals if you would like to purchase an additional finish.

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


Please note: The style/colour/appearance of the included SmartAmp Plating Machine may vary from the photograph, this does not affect the functioning/technical specifications of the product.
