Product Overview


Due to the high current usage during chrome plating, a mist of acid is produced from the tank. This can become a nuisance due to the corrosive nature of the product and its yellow stain. The Complete Plating Manual shows how to control much of this, using an inexpensive 'fume' hood made from an old cooking stove/ range hood.

Commercial platers also use these floating solid plastic balls to reduce this mist. They are left in the tank and cover the entire surface of the chromic acid solution, reducing the emissions. They will reduce the mist by as much as 70%, saving chemical and keeping the entire operation much cleaner. 90 x 1" polyethylene floating balls are supplied in each pack, which is sufficient to cover one of our 3.5 or 5 gal plating tanks.

Mist control balls are also used while anodizing to reduce acid misting.


Please note that our shipping prices are a higher than it would cost to send a normal parcel via the post, the reason for this is because any product that contains chemicals must be sent and packed as per the "hazardous goods" regulations, and be transported by a carrier that is licensed to be able to transport. we are unable to send by regular post as it is now a criminal offence to send undeclared hazardous goods.
