About Eastwood Electroplating System Tin Zinc
This kit solves problems of sending parts out to expensive plating shops, or storing dangerous chemicals by allowing you to conveniently plate almost any metal part at home. This system brings a brilliant luster to properly prepared metal parts with a corrosion-resistant, protective plating resembling chrome but without the expense, hassles or hazards. Electroplating uses electric current to pull small amounts of metal from the positively charged tin-zinc anode bar through electrolyte solution and onto the negatively charged piece to be plated. The anode bar will last through dozens of parts.
The Tin-Zinc Plating Kit includes: 2 quarts of electrolyte (plating solution), anode bar, battery holder, funnel, a 100 gram tube of Autosol polish, an electroplating brush, goggles, pair of disposable gloves, and complete instructions.
We recommend PRE Painting Prep (10041 Z) and Rust Remover (16027). Diamond Clear Gloss for Bare Metal (10200Z) be applied after plating for improved durability.
Always use the Tin-Zinc Electroplating System in a well ventilated area. The electrolyte solution contains Sulphuric Acid. Wear eye and skin protection. Keep a source of clean water nearby to immediately rinse off any splash.
Made in the USA. 30 Day Eastwood Warranty.
This kit will plate steel, brass, & copper (no aluminum or die cast). Parts must be thoroughly degreased and derusted before plating. (We recommend PRE Painting Prep (10041 Z) and Oxisolv Rust Remover (16025). A clear coat like Diamond Clear Gloss for Bare Metal (10200Z) will improve durability. The Plating Solution typically has a cloudy appearance, and should in no way inhibit performance. Agitate slightly before plating. Store Electrolyte in it's original chemical container and place in a sealed plastic bag, between 55 & 95 degrees F. Use in well ventilated area. Avoid contact with electrolyte.
