  • Need Plating Done On Wrestling Belt

    I have a set of wrestling belt plates that I would like to have plated. They are made of cast zinc and I need them gold plated. I am in North Carolina and if you can do the job please contact me at keithkeever@charter.net

    I just joined Caswell and didn't notice a reply to your post. So even though it's been awhile since u posted... I hope this helps. You cannot plate over zinc. It must be removed by soaking the part in a mixture of 50% muriatic acid and water. Soak until all the zinc has been dissolved and proceed as if plating raw steel. Since your piece is ALL zinc, it cannot be plated.

      It can be plated if you first plate with our Flash Copper solution, which works as effectively as cyanide based copper plates, without the dangerous chemicals. Flash Copper plates very well over zinc.

      You can then plate with nickel, then gold.

        THIS is why you should trust Caswell plating!!! I have ALWAYS been told by ANOTHER supplier that Zinc could NOT be plated. Guess they were wrong!! My bad for listening to them. Thanks Caswell!
