Our new bronze plating system provides a beautiful, rich bronze finish without any dangerous cyanides or other hazardous chemicals. The coating is suitable for decorative applications.
It will plate over Zinc Castings, Pot Metal, Pewter, Electroless Nickel, Plated Nickel, Copper, Steel, Sintered Metal, Tin, Lead, Stainless Steel and Zincated Aluminum.
It is recommended to activate Zinc Castings, Lead and Pot Metal in Pickle #4 prior to plating.
The bronze plating solution comes pre-mixed and ready to use. Plate with stainless steel anodes at 80°F, with 3V and 0.07 Amps per Square Inch.
A 2-3 minute plating time provides a good color, which may then be clear coated for corrosion resistance. If buffing the bronze plate is required, plating time should be increased to 30-40 minutes.
