    Electroless nickel plates at an approx. rate of 1 mil (1/1000") per hour. Indoor decorative applications will need approx. 0.25 mil or 15 min. of plating.

    General outdoor items (hand tools, hand guns) should receive 0.5mils or 30min.

    Items requiring high corrosion resistance should receive 1mils or 60 min.

    Our 1 liter kit will plate approx. 75 sq. in. of surface area with a bright nickel @ 1 mil, or 300 sq. in. @ 0.25 mil.

    The 4 liter kit will plate approx. 720 sq. in or 2880 sq. in. @ 0.25 mil.

    Our 12? liter kit will plate approx. 1500 sq. in. or 6000 sq. in. @ 0.25 mil.

    As the baths are used, nickel depletes from the solution. You will need to replenish this periodically, using our unique method of calculating the nickel loss. Additions to the solution may be made with small quantities of Part A & Part C.

    The tank has a 13" diameter and is 8" deep, so it'll be a tight fit. You'll need to zincate the aluminum part first.

    Copychrome tends to be more versatile, as it doesn't require a ceramic tank.
