Zinc die-castings have, until now, been a difficult material to plate for the small operation. Die-casting manufacturers have used dangerous chemicals and cyanide copper plating systems to clean, prepare and plate the parts, making it almost impossible to do on a small scale.

This new kit has completely resolved this problem, by using a new commercial grade system of etching, cyanide free copper plating, and finally plating with our famous Copy Chrome™ system. The system will also plate pewter, lead, brass, copper, and steel model parts.

Previously painted parts should be immersed in any conventional paint stripper to remove all traces of paint.

Buff to a high shine using a cotton wheel and buffing compound.

Place the SP Degreaser in a microwave and heat until at least 140°F, immerse the part for about 2 minutes, and then scrub off any heavy deposits with the brush supplied.

Rinse in tap water and then immerse in the Pickle #4 for 1-2 minutes.

Wrap the bandages around the flat metal ends of each plating wand.

Attach the positive lead (with the red plug) to the copper wand.

Attach the black alligator clip to the object being plated.

At this point, you can either brush plate the copper on, or plate it in immersion. Flash Copper™ & Copy Chrome™ solutions should be heated in a microwave to approx 110°F.

To brush plate, thoroughly wet the bandaged wand in Flash Copper™ solution and using slow strokes, swab the entire surface of the object. Repeat the process 5 or 6 times to build up sufficient thickness of plate.

To immersion plate: Place the bandaged wand into the plating solution and clip it to the container edge with a clothes clip. Attach the object to the alligator clip and suspend it in the solution. With Flash Copper™, plating should be completed in about 2-4 minutes. With Copy Chrome™, allow about 10 minutes. Turn the part in the solution frequently.

Always plate with Flash Copper™ before attempting to plate with Copy Chrome™.

Buff and polish the parts to a bright shine with Flitz.
