  • Zinc plating basic questions

    Hey all. I did something stupid and left my zinc anodes in the bucket with the solution. They are now a dark charcoal color. I also noticed that the initial powders used to set up the mix have fallen out of the solution and now sitting on the bottom as some small solids. I'm hopeful those will dissolve back into the solution when heated.

    So what should my PH be? The solution has been sitting for a year. Also is there any way to measure how much zinc brightener I need to add to the solution to keep my zinc plating results consistent?

    PH should be 5.5, So your saying the solution has sat for a year with the anodes in the solution the entire time ?
