Our new Cobalt Plating Kit operates in exactly the same manner as our Electroless Nickel kits. The kit is pure cobalt...no nickel or other additives, which means it's perfectly safe for jewelry or other items where nickel rash was a problem. Cobalt gives the plate a dazzling chrome look and imparts more hardness to the surface, without any hazardous materials. Applied to a previously polished surface and then buffed lightly, the finish will match most commercial chrome plated pieces.

When electroless plating, you may not plate any item that has a surface area exceeding the maximum load of the bath. The maximum load is 30 sq. in./quart of plating bath. Refer to the table below

After making up the initial solution, each kit can be replenished with the included replenisher chemical, to a maximum of 10 times. After 10 times, the bath must be disposed and a fresh bath made. Based on the size of the kit, each kit will plate a certain amount of surface area. Refer to the table below. Replenishment chemicals can be purchased separately.
