  • plating over Copy Chrome

    Let me start with saying thanks for all of the valuable info on this forum. It has helped me a great deal. My ?? is can I replate copy chrome over copy chrome or does it need to be stripped? I have some small parts that I buffed a bit to much from and need to replate. I get the dull grey coat as well and plan on trying the technique mentioned here.

      Jim is there a pickle I can use to remove just the Copy Chrome and not the copper beneath or just throw it in the blast cabinet and strip it off?

        If there are no defects in the plating that you are referring to then you can use the pickle #3 (one part of water, two parts battery acid allow to cool the add one more part of battery acid) immerse for 15-30 seconds, rinse then plate with the copy chrome.
