Methods and items checklist

Method

Possible surfaces

Electroforming

All non-conductive surfaces e.g. plastics

Tank plating

All metal surfaces

Brush plating

All metal surfaces except aluminium

 

Please note that with electroplating, all metal items must have a bare metal surface. Any metal item which is painted, powder coated or consists of another non-metal finish must be taken back to bare metal before plating. If the surface is anodised, then some of our kits come with the chemical needed to remove this or it can be purchased separately, please see: G.S.P Anodise Stripper.
