Copper electrolyte alkaline / basic for acid sensitive materials
The copper gives a beautiful shiny finish. It can still be used with our Bronze-
Mixer can be used to mix different color shades from red gloss to white bronze
to be able. White bronze is increasingly desired and used as a nickel substitute.
Copper electrolyte alkaline for acid sensitive metals
Copper electrolyte alkaline (basic) can be used in both bath electroplating and pen plating / tampon plating. Our alkaline copper electrolyte contains no cyanides.
Since it enables electroplating of acid-sensitive metals, it is suitable for many applications. The important properties of alkaline copper electrolyte are excellent levelling and good dispersion. In addition, alkaline or basic copper impresses with an intensive and visually attractive color tone. An additional coating with our bright copper electrolyte can further enhance this color tone.
Application areas for copper electrolyte alkaline
Copper alkaline prepares acid-sensitive materials for copper plating with acid copper electrolyte. These include various ferrous materials or zinc.
A particular advantage is that it does not deposit on iron without current, which would form a loose coating before galvanic deposition begins. This increases the adhesion on ferrous materials.
Basic copper electrolyte serves as an intermediate layer for acid-sensitive metals before the final coating with acid electrolytic copper or other coatings.
Basic copper electrolyte is suitable for the following metals:
Lead, bronze, iron, copper, brass, zinc, tin, steel, zinc die-cast and many others
Basic copper is not suitable for aluminum, chrome and titanium. Aluminium requires a pretreatment with the aluminium activator
Please test all other metals not mentioned above for their suitability for galvanic copper plating before copper plating
Application notes for copper electrolyte alkaline
Copper electrolyte alkaline is suitable for all electroplating processes from bath plating to pen plating / pad plating. It already works at room temperature; however, it can be heated up if required. The ideal temperature range is between 25 - 50°C.
Clean the workpiece thoroughly before treatment to remove grease and oil. Please remove dirt and rust with appropriate tools. Handle the object with disposable gloves only to avoid transferring skin grease to the surface.
Parameters for the use of copper electrolyte alkaline
Anodes made of copper are optimal, nickel or tin anodes are also suitable.
Anode on positive pole - workpiece on negative pole
