Electroless Copper Plating Kit
Introducing a new, simple way to make non-metallic parts conductive. Easier to use than conductive paints. The Electroless Copper Plating Kit provides an even, consistent layer of copper, which can then be plated with Acid Copper for a thicker layer.
The system can operate at room temperature, or can be heated to 40°C for a slightly faster plating time.
Can plate directly onto cleaned plastics, etched glass or epoxies. Includes an epoxy sealer for plating over porous items such as wood, leather, plants, rubber, or anything else you can imagine.
Seal your part in epoxy and allow to cure. For plastics or glass, no need to seal. Simply clean with acetone and degreaser.
Immerse in Sensitizer for 2 mins and rinse
Immerse in Activator for 2 mins and rinse
Immerse in Electroless Copper for up tp 60 mins and rinse
The Electroless Copper system plates at 5 Microns and will not plate beyond that thickness. For thicker copper layers, proceed to our Acid Copper Plating Kit after Electroless Copper plating.
Bath life is determined by the area and time of the part being plated. The system contains 150ml of copper per Litre of solution. Each Litre of solution will plate approx 320 sqcm at full thickness.
The Pint Kit Contains:
1 Glass Pint Beaker (for copper solution)
3 Plastic 1 Litre Beakers (for sensitizer, activator and distilled water rinse)
500ml Electroless Copper A
500ml Electroless Copper B
1 Litre Sensitizer
1 Litre Activator
1 Litre Caswell Sealpoxy Sealer
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, for postage rates please click on the tab above.
