About the Product

 

Robotpark Advanced Nickel Plating Kit is a set collected by Robotpark for nickel electroplating metals. The kit includes all the chemicals needed to prepare a 5L plating bath. The volume of your plating bath depends on your choice while you are not confronting with the guide sent to you with the kit.

Besides the chemicals for preparing the bath, the kit also includes pure nickel anode and a special pH indicator strips to measure pH value of the bath. The kit also includes a metal polisher to polish your metal after plating. The advanced kit also includes two crocodile cables to use during electrolysis, a glass thermometer for measuring bath temperature, a glass rod to stir the solution in the container and a pair of gloves and a mask for your safety throughout the plating process.

What is Electrolysis?

Electrolysis is done by connecting the metal to be plated to “-“  pole and connecting nickel anode to “+” pole inside the bath. Since the cathode and anode are connected to opposite poles, nickel ions separated from the nickel anode stick on the surface of the metal to be plated. For nickel plating via electrolysis, the nickel anode has to be pure. The most efficient results are achieved when the bath pH is between 3.8 and 4.5. Bath temperature is also important for nickel plating. The temperature of the bath is supposed to be 50⁰C-60⁰C.

Steps for Nickel Electroplating

  • The ideal container for nickel electroplating is glass or porcelain.
  • The chemicals in the kit are mixed with in the container.
  • The substances are stirred with a glass rod.
  • Before plating, the metal to be plated and the nickel anode has to be cleared thoroughly.
  • The bath is heated to the suitable temperature and the pH is checked.
  • The metal to be plated is connected to “-“ pole and nickel anode is connected to “+” pole and they are dipped into the bath.
  • There should be at least 5cm between anode and cathode.
  • 2.5V-3V is applied to anode and cathode.
  • Moving the metal to be plated slowly in the bath while plating gives better results.
  • After the plating is done, plated metal surface is cleared.
  • Plated metal is polished with the metal polisher.
