  • SilverSpary dilemma

    Ok if someone could just tell me in laymen terms if this is possible and/or feasible. I want to plate plastic with gold. I already have a brush plating system that work great on metal. So... can i silverspary the plastic, brush plate it with nickel, then brush plate it with gold? i saw on the silverspray page that it says it does not work well with brush plating. Is this because it just doesn't work well at all, or that it is more difficult and takes mastering (i can live with the second one) Finally is there a better way with the silver spray to coat/plate a nickel surface to the silverspray plastic unit and then to use my gold plating machine on the nickel? Should i use something beside nickel?

    Sorry for all the questions but im new at this and i really want to figure out the best way to do this affordable and in house. Thanks for your reply ahead of time.

            You cannot brush plate onto Silvaspray.

            See http://www.caswellplating.com/kits/copper.htm for our immersion copper system.
