  • plating over liquid steel

    Is it possible to put nickel or copper plating over auto body repair liquid steel. I've got a part that I can't put welding heat on it. So i'm tring to get some alternative.

    Tkx for the help!

    These epoxies are plastics filled with very finely ground steel. Unfortunately, the epoxy encapsulates the steel particles and insulates them from each other, and the art being repaired.

    So, it doesn't work, sorry.

      However, PITSTOP is an epoxy filled with silver. It's expensive, but it works. Fill the deep holes with steel epoxy, then wipe a thin layer of Pitstop over it to provide conductivity.
