  • 304 stainless

    Hi
    I am trying to flash copper plate onto 304 stainless for a Christmas ornament. I have soaked in SP cleaner till it passes the water break, 60 seconds in #4 pickle and then into flash copper tank. The plate has a high luster but no adheasion. If I leave it in tank for 15 minutes it starts to wrinkle and peal off. I tried to activate with HCI for 3 minutes and no change in results. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Should I use that to activate 300 series steels for your black nickel process too ?

        yes, Immerse the part in a solution of 50% muriatic acid and 50% distilled water for 10 seconds at room temperature. Brush plate with Stainless Steel Activator and stainless wand, carefully going over the same area several times
