   Home            Nickel Plating Kit
Ideal for DIY enthusiasts, car or motorcycle restorers. 

This is probably the most comprehensive kit on the market. Other than a power supply, we include everything you need to get started.

The kit is easy to use and gives outstanding results on various metals including steel, iron, brass, copper 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 plating process is quite quick with a typical 10 micron coating taking about 25 minutes. 

There are two types of finish; a matt unpolished finish and a polished finish.  The polished finish is not dissimilar in appearance to chrome but with a slightly different hue.  Nickel will also give outstanding protection against corrosion.

This kit comes with a nickel electroplating guide. This detailed guide contains all the information you need to get great results.

There is also no need for an expensive power supply as we will show you how to use a 12v car battery or battery charger.

Included in the kit are:

  • 1.4kg Nickel Electrolyte chemicals (will make 5 litres )
  • Nickel Anodes, 2 or 3 depending on the thickness, (enough to plate over 20,000 sq cm at 25 microns)
  • A thermostatic tank heater
  • A tank
  • Copper wire
  • Titanium wire
  • Brown wire
  • Blue wire
  • A current controller which enables you to plate from a 6-12v battery or battery charger.
  • Crocodile clips
  • Goggles
  • A dust mask
  • Gloves
  • A nickel electroplating guide
  • Safety data sheets

With this kit you also get email backup for questions or queries.

This kit will nickel plate numerous items. Exactly how many is hard to say as it depends on the thickness of the plating but we include twice the amount of nickel that you will find in our competitors kits.

Should the nickel anodes become exhausted or more electrolyte chemicals are needed, we can supply more at a very reasonable price.
