This bronze plating kit is designed to be used either as a flash plating kit or to put a heavier bronze plate onto various types of metals.

When being used for flash plating, it is best used on top of a polished surface, ideally plated over nickel or our replica chrome. Produced this way, the finish is a high lustre bronze colour.

When heavier plates are applied the bronze deposited is a matt bronze finish and requires polishing to bring back to a high lustre if needed.

It is ideal for the DIY enthusiast, car or motorcycle restorer, model maker or any restorer wishing to plate bronze or to achieve a bronze finish at a fraction of the cost of solid bronze.  It is also very useful for antique restorers wishing to repair or replate damaged and worn items.

This kit gives outstanding results on various metals including brass, copper, nickel, replica chrome, steel, Iron, lead castings and if used in conjunction with the correct metallic spray it can also plate non-metallic items.

Setting up and getting started is easy. The flash plating process is very quick with a typical flash plate taking about 1 minute. Heavier plating will take longer depending on the thickness required.  Odd shaped objects can be plated by using different shaped tanks, so for long items, you could use a wallpaper soaking tank and for larger diameter items use a plastic washing up bowl.

This complete kit comes with a bronze electroplating guide. This guide contains all the information you need to get plating.

There is also no need for an expensive power supply as I will show you how to use a 12v car battery or battery charger and our current controller which, unlike others is totally variable. You can adjust it to whatever size item you want to plate.

Also included in the kit are:

Electrolyte chemicals (will make 10 litres of electrolyte)
140g high purity phosphor bronze anodes, enough to plate 14,000 sq cm at 10 microns
A totally variable current controller
A 5.5 litre tank with a resealable lid
Copper wire
Brown wire
Blue wire
Crocodile clips
a dust mask
Safety data sheets
a bronze electroplating guide
