Whilst many older parts that have been nickel plated were electroplated using a dull deposit and often hand polished, today we can achieve some really nice, bright results with a very simple kit.


A bright plating solution is made up in the same way as a standard base nickel solution, using all of the standard nickel plating salts. However, a bright plating solution has other, formulated products added to provide certain qualities which will help make the deposit more pleasing and importantly bright.


Each ingredient has a different role to play in the electroplating process and should be used to provide the best possible result.
