   Home            Brass Brush Plating Kit

Ideal for the DIY enthusiast, car or motorcycle restorer, antique restorer, model maker etc. 

This kit is very easy to use and gives outstanding results on various metals including nickel, replica chrome, steel, iron, brass, zinc, and copper. If used in conjunction with the correct metallic spray it can also plate non-metallic items.  Getting started is easy, the plating process for brass can be very quick as a decorative finish is usually done over nickel and takes just a few minutes. Thicker brass plating direct onto steel takes a bit longer, but you can still plate a 10mm nut and bolt in about 15 minutes.  This brush plating kit is ideal for plating small items or repairing patches on larger items.

You can use brass brush plating as a very effective substitute for gold plating as, when polished, the finish is very very similar to gold as you can see from the photo below with replica chrome on the right and brass brush plating on the left.

This comprehensive kit comes with a brush plating guide containing all the information you need to get great results time after time.

Within the guide it explains how to brush plate other metals and how to combine different metals to fill scratches and pits to repair even badly corroded parts.

Unlike other kits all the items you need to brush plate are included so there is no need to buy cleaners and activators.

We even include a variable 12V power supply, which can be used with all our brush plating and brush cleaning kits.

Included in the kit are:

  • 100ml brass plating solution
  • 100ml GP1 alkaline cleaner
  • 100ml acid activator
  • Variable voltage power supply from 3-12V
  • A brass brush plating wand
  • A brush plating guide 
  • Reusable gloves
  • Cotton buds for acid etch/activator
  • Safety data sheets
