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

Made in the USA. 30 Day Eastwood Warranty.

In the Box

Contents

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, and complete instructions.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best things I have bought from Eastwood I have to admit that this totally exceeded my expectations. Attached are some before and after pics of my fuel injection rail and ratiners. I gave them a quick clean in the blast cabinet followed by a wipe down with Eastwood Pre Paint. Left them in plating solution for about 10 minutes, then polished with the provided compound and a cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Things To Know I have been using since 2007. Great product! Degrease thoroughly part first! Do not use wire wheel for prepping!!! This spreads impurities Media blasting is the best!!! Media blast paint, rust, remaining plating. If deeply rust pitted, blast thoroughly, use Eastwood Rust Remover 24 hours, rinse, re-blast, straight to plating. Do not over plate. Replate 1 or 2 after burnishings to remove oxide residue. For most pieces use 1 (not 2) D size battery, jump vacant battery. I like Autosol, but not for this process. Use small fine/soft hand stainless steel brush in one direction to burnish surface or 3M OOOO synthetic steel wool to remove reside and give luster or satin finish. When done spray with CRC Marine, let dry. Option - rub off excess. Use Latex or Nitrile gloves, wear protective glasses! Eastwood should add a "brightener" to their system. Bill H

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with the kit. I purchased the kit a couple of years ago and I have plated several small parts. I have been satisfied with every part that I plated. I bought more electrolyte solution so that I can attempt to do larger parts. Make sure that the parts that you are going to plate are clean & free of finger prints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I'm restoring a 45 year old motorcycle that spent 20 years leaning against the tree, uncovered. So you can imagine how badly corroded many of the parts were. I just finished plating about 200 bolts, nuts, washers and small parts. This used about 30% of the zinc. The parts look better than new. I'm 100% satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I thought a long time before ordering this. Figured it wouldn't really work or would be a pain. It works great! This weekend I showed my son and grandsons and they started begging to prepare parts for me so I could plate them! Preparing the parts is the only hard part and that's because my parts sat in the rain for 13 years! I process my prepared arts for 4 minutes and get great results every time. I did one part I couldn't dip and the brush method worked great too -- took quite a while but saved me $50 by not having to buy a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Awesome DIY Product!!! I finally had a chance to use this kit on my fuel injector clips & I must say that I am very impressed with the results it gave me!! I used E.W.'s Rust Dissolver first to get any leftover rust scale off them, followed by a quick freshwater dip, & into the electrolyte solution for probably 2-2.5 minutes each. Considering that these clips are over $4.00 each & they come in a finish that doesn't match my polished fuel rails, this kit has already given me much of my value back in a durable finish that actually has a nice luster to it. I'm also going to go ahead & hit them with some of their Diamond Clear for bare metals as suggested, so that should really keep them looking great for years to come. Thanks Matt & the rest of the Eastwood crew for yet another great DIY solution!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More that Pays for itself in a short time This is a great little kit. I have already plated about 35 items with it, so it has more than paid for itself. The plated items have a sort of frosted look to them, but polished up very nicely to a bright polished chrome look. But keep in mind while it might look like chrome, it isn't as hard as chrome. I replaced the power source (two D batteries) with a plug in wall transformer of approx. the same voltage/amperage. That way I don't have to wory about changing batteries and the voltage stays at a constant level. I recommend doing the same if you use the kit very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I have been restoring motorcycles for years, always sending my zinc out to be plated. I still do for large batches of large parts but there are always parts that come back looking bad or I find parts that I forgot to send. In 4 minutes I can plate bolts, nuts, bracket etc., that look as good and sometimes better than the stuff I get back from the professional plater!. I love this product and use it more and more now instead of the professionals! Like any other part coating process, cleaning and prep is the key to a good finish. I get a good finish everytime by simple following the instructions included in the kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I've restored quite a few (Read: LOTS) of small parts for my 1973 Camaro restoration using this system, and have been extrememly happy with the results. As stated in an earlier review; be prepared to do some polishing to get the parts to the finish you desire---with patience and a little elbow grease you'll get the shine you desire. I used this kit so much, I need to oreder another zinc electrode!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great easy-to-use kit! I agree that this is a great kit! I used it when rebuilding a few carburetors. It worked great on all the steel linkages and plates. I start with beadblasting the part. Then I hung the part on a wire that would be used to suspend the part in the plating tank. Next I degreased with acetone or brake cleaner. Then I stripped the old cad plate. This was done by soaking the part in a 50/50 mix of water/battery acid. The part will bubble for a minute or two while the old pating is being stripped. Then a water rinse next. If there had been any rust on the part, I soaked in a 50/50 mix of water/muriatic acid. (never pour water into acid! always acid into water) Then another water rinse. Finally the part was plated. There will be a foaming action in the tank above the part as it plates. This is normal. Afterward, I lightly rubbed with 000 steel wool to give anice satin lustre to the beadblasted parts. It's really a nice finish! My only negative comment would be the price of the annodes. If you will plate a lot, order a few of them to save on shipping. One bar will go a long way though. I tagged on a photo of a typical before and after of a carb part. It's hard to capture in a pictrue, but it sure is a nice finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY Plating wth Great Results & Low Cost I have to admit I was skeptical that this process would give me good results. But this product works! Now I plate every part that can rust before I re-assemble them. It is an extra step but it keeps those parts looking like they are new. And you really can use the brush method to do larger pieces that you can't dunk into the plating solution! I'm sold! " Get a good rust remover and then electroplate it", that's the ticket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fun product to use, Bought kit awhile ago,used it last weekend on my hinge peices for my tailgate. the finsh work on the metal was not great but the plating was nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small parts & hardware I bought this kit to save some time/$$$ on those dozens (if not hundreds) of small zinc-plated fasteners and small parts on my five restorations. I'd have to rate the system as excellent, with the only detraction being that only one anode is supplied in the kit, and with a boxload of small parts, it disappears quickly. the finish once buffed is superb, and I found that on fasteners and smaller components that a fine brass wire brush brings out a nice shine. I assume a short run in a tumbler w/ glass bead media might have the same affect, but I have not tried that. My pre-plate prep included bathing the parts in a muriatic acid solution, rinse and dry media blast. This gave for superior final results. Sure beats an expensive trip to the platers..!
Date published: 2010-07-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maybe our best new tool! I own a speed shop and we do a good deal of Quadrajet rebuilds. I used the kit today to plate some small parts and the secondary plates and the results where better then I even hoped they could have been. No drama at all, I followed the instructions and the parts came out perfect on the first try. You can still read the part numbers as if the parts where stripped metal. To make your life easier, use eastwood fast etch, I used many etchers but I will never use another.
Date published: 2010-03-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but alot of work to polish This system is great for the price, my only issue is the amount of polishing required to put a high shine on the part after plating. I start with a polished piece, the plating leaves a dull finish, then ALOT of elbow grease to get it shiny again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good just bought this kit to do a bunch of small nut,bolts etc for my 61 Impala restoration. it works pretty good. i had brand new black oxide bolts that i cleaned real good and it did a fine job. i also ran them lightly on the wire wheel and it shined them up pretty good also. i will now coat them with diamond clear for bare metal spray.
Date published: 2015-10-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from plating system OK , ITS TRU THAT YOU HAVE TO GET ALL THE RUST OFF AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE , I STARTED COATING SOME BOLTS AND WASHERS THAT I THOUGHT WERE CLEANED BUT IT DOES SHOW YOU WHERE THE RUST IS, SO : HERE'S THE GOOD PART: WHEN I TOOK THE PARTS WITH A LITTLE RUST STILL ON THEM BACK TO THE WIRE WHEEL / GRINDER TO REMOVE THE RUST , TO MY SURPRISE , IT NOT ONLY REMOVED THE RUST ,IT POLISHED UP THE PARTS BETTER THEN THE POLLISH THAT COMES WITH THE KIT. IF YOU PUSH HARD IT WILL REMOVE THE COATING AS WELL SO DON'T PUSH THE PARTS HARD ON THE WIRE WHEEL. THIS STUFF REALY WORKS. NEED TO CHANG OUT THE BATTERIES OFFTEN.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for the little touch of class Plated odd size bolts and nuts that could not be found in stainless steal.The process gave me very good results. The plated bolts look almost as good as the stainless bolts. Very easy but some what time consuming. But the time spent was worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from skeptical at first After researchiing all the available solutions, I was skeptical but took the plunge. Was very surprised with the great results. Restoring an old motorcycle with lots of small heavily rusted parts. The batteries as a power source was my biggest concern but it worked very well. Only issue is with a lot of small parts, I went through a lot of batteries. I also found that the best results were obtained by an acid etch followed by a thourough wire brush cleaning produced best results.

There is a brush with what looks like a small piece of anode attached to it.  No mention in the instructions as to how to use it, other than brush the crystals off the piece.  

Asked by: William
For larger parts that don’t fit into the solution • The ground clip is attached to the part. • Positive clip is attached to the Brush/Small Tin Zinc Strip. • Dip the brush in solution and “paint” on the plating. (The brush needs to be frequently dipped into the solution).

How can you tell when the solution needs replaced? About how long does the solution last? I've used it enough that my first anode bar is about 50% used.

Asked by: Matt
The solution usually lasts for quite a while but eventually it does loose effectiveness. It is a factor of surface area covered and not time.To give rough idea, you could probably plate about 300 3/8-16 x 1" bolts before the solution would be used up.Also, a major reason that the elecroplating process becomes less effective is a carbon buildup on the Anode Strips. This is a dark grey coating that appears on the surface of the Tin Zinc strips and should be scraped off when it appears.

During storage some of the solution settles on the bottom of the container as sediment that does not remix when shaken. What is the effect on plating without the sediment that has settled during storage and shipping? Should the solution be strained?

Asked by: VintageAmerican
The particles, in the solution that have settled to the bottom, will not harm the plating process. It would be very difficult to strain the sediment from the solution. As the solution is used it will eventually loose its ability to deposit tin/zinc.

will the tin/zinc coating adhere to lead filler

Asked by: kramerduke
In short…Yes…and no.. Let me explain: The Tin-Zinc plating has varying degrees of attraction depending on the metal being plated based on natural affinity. Put a penny or piece of brass in the solution, give it current and it plates instantly and with maximum thickness. Add a piece of steel…it will plate it but not as well or as fast as copper and brass. Aluminum, less so and so on. It will cover the Tin/Lead filler but will take much longer and the plating will be somewhat thinner.
