Eastwood Electroplating System Tin Zinc

Product Overview:

Description

"At-home" Tin-Zinc Electroplating System brings a brilliant shine to your dull auto parts.

  • Adds a brilliant chrome-like finish to brass, copper and steel parts
  • Also adds a corrosion-resistant, protective plating
  • Easy enough to do at home
  • 99.95% Tin anode

Electroplating is easier than you think when you use the Eastwood Tin-Zinc Electroplating System. It brings back the original brilliant luster to properly prepared metal parts.



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.

Warranty

Guides & Accessories

Instructions

Safety Information

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.

Accessories

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. Nitrile gloves to protect your hands are also needed.

Application Tips

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 (10041z) to thoroughly clean the bare metal part. 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.

Questions & Answers

I noticed some rust inside the fuel filler and vent tube on my 1986 GMC C1500. After removing the rust, will the Tin-Zinc Electroplating System keep the rust from coming back? And how well will the plating stand up to continuous contact with fuel?

Asked by: Brian
We do not recommend this product for an application that will be exposed to constant submersion to fuel.

Is this kid good for chrome plating control arms/trailing arms/valve covers/ coil springs??

Asked by: LowridingPeter726
Yes, this will work but additional solution and a stronger battery would be needed for components of this magnitude.

Could you take out the tin annode and replace with nickels to nickel plate a part? I have some potentiometer tuners I want to satin nickel plate. 

Asked by: Youredone82
I do. I use an Ac to DC converter for my power source and do around 3 volts and 2 amps. I dip until the gummy slag builds, rinse clean with brass brush and dip again until a bright shine. Then polish. Nickel is harder brighter and has less friction thanks zinc. It is less flexible though.

Do you recommend for small carburetor? Fuel resistant

Asked by: Td91
This kit could certainly be used for the application in reference and it would be impervious to fluids and fuel.
