Add Beautiful, Tough, Nickel Plating Capabilities To Your Shop
Beautiful, bright nickel plating in your shop without use of an
electric power supply transformer or the hazards of cyanide salts.
Finish is as lustrous as the very best of professional electroplating
but tougher, more flexible (it will bend 180° without
damage) and more rust resistant (240 continuous hours of salt
spray). This remarkable process will pay for your total investment
with the first four or five jobs you do - from then on, the best of
pro-fits for yourself, and products for your customer. (All the
components can be shipped to you by UPS.)
Nickel Plating is easy to apply, requiring a minimum of special
equipment and no technical knowledge. By following our thorough,
step-by-step instructions, the plating you do will be equal in looks
and quality to that of the most experienced commercial shop. Plus,
electroless nickel plating has the following features:-
•Can be soldered, brazed and welded.
•Excellent resistance to corrosion.
•Plated contact surfaces give smoother action.
•Micro-Smooth structure - far superior to
•No extensive after-polishing for high
•Lay-Flat molecular lattice - no humps and
ridges, thin edges or bulges around screw holes as with
electroplated nickel - nor any "needle pointing" of pins and screws.
•Even thickness of nickel overall.
•With experience and the use of stop-off lacquer from
a plating supply house, worn parts (pins - “ways”, etc.) can be
built up or tightened as much as .001" and “nickel lubricated”, too.
•Nickel stripper available
that requires no cyanide!

booklet which gives step-by-step procedures and also tells you
how to make your own tank, stirrer and hot-plate setup.
A real opportunity to add a money making
service to your shop. Note:- Charges for nickel plating run from
$165 to $250, and more, depending upon finish and gun (much
of the pricing depends upon how much pre-polishing is necessary).
Electroless Nickel Plating
requires using four, easy-to-mix chemicals which we carry in
concentrated form. Details and exact quantities of the mixtures are
fully described in the instruction book, available at no charge . . .
just ask for it.
Electroless Nickel Plating Concentrate
No. A-1 - One gallon (3.8L) of concentrate makes 5 gallons
(19L) of plating solution; no need to mix all at one time.
One gallon of mixed plating solution will plate 142 sq. inches (916
sq. cm) of metal at 195° F.
Plating Additive No. B-1 - Used at the rate of 41/2 oz. (133ml)
per gallon when mixing the final solution for Nickel Plating Solution.
Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) - Used to prepare
"Activator" (Pick ling Solution) for treating guns just prior to
plating. Can be shipped UPS.
Plating Activator Additive No. C-1 - Small amounts are added
to the Hydrochloric Acid to retard formation of smut on the gun
while being "activated".
Note: Top two chemicals below are required to make Plating
Solution. Will plate from 5 large to 25 small guns. Bottom two
chemicals are required to make Activator
solution. *Requires Additional Hazardous Materials Surcharge.
