  • Plating only a section of a submerged part

    I wanted to avoid plating a few small sections of my part and I remember a rep telling me how to do that but I forgot to write it down and well, here I am. It would be too difficult to have the section I don?t want plated sticking out of the tank so I need something to go over it and mask it off. Any ideas would really be appreciated. Thanks.

    Sometimes I use just your normal electrical tape and in holes I use a hot glue gun, the glue will easily come out after the plating process. You can also paint the section with normal paint or finger nail polish works good also. Then strip after your done.

      MrRage:

      Caswells Mask-It works well: http://www.caswellplating.com/kits/maskit.htm

      and so does Powder Coat masking tape: http://www.caswellplating.com/powder/powder_tape.html

      These parts were masked w/powder coat tape, the ends zinc plated:
