Damaged / Defective Products


If you have received damaged products, we apologise in advance and ask you to please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with a description and/or photo of the damage and we will respond as soon as possible to rectify the problem. 


If you believe your product is faulty, please get in touch and we will be happy to investigate this. Faulty goods are deemed as operational or manufacturing faults with equipment such as plating machines, polishing machines, and plating leads.

It does not cover the following: damage resulting from the incorrect use of equipment; damage as a result of incorrect maintenance of either chemicals or equipment; damage to chemicals due to incorrect storage, incorrect use, or incorrect practices; damage to chemicals or equipment due to the use of faulty products not supplied by us, and/or products that we have advised are unsuitable e.g. damage to chemicals due to defective anodes purchased elsewhere/incorrect anode type. 


All chemicals are tested before dispatch, so it is very unlikely that you will ever receive defective chemicals in the first instance. If you believe you have received defective chemicals, we will ask you to perform a quick and basic test to assertain the viability of the solution. If this test is unsuccessful or refused, you may return the chemical in full for testing at our premises. A full refund plus any postage costs incurred for the return will be granted if a defect is confirmed. If we find the chemical to be functioning normally, any refund offered is at our discretion, and a refund may be refused. Customers will be asked to cover return costs if a refund is refused and they wish for the goods to be returned to them.

Standard no-fault returns of chemicals apply only when they are returned unopened, unused, and in full quantity up to 14 days from purchase (see full policy below).


If you require any additional advice beyond what can be found on our website or in the instructions provided with your purchase, or you would like clarification on any aspect of your instructions, we are always happy to help. Please seek advice by directing these queries to us before operating your equipment and/or using your chemicals.
