General Cleaning + Surface Preparation

The first step for effective metal preparation is to ensure dirt and grease is removed leaving no contaminates.

To do this you can either use a pickling solution or an ultrasonic cleaner to clean the metal. You can also use a manual abrasive technique called wet brushing which cleans the metal using soapy water.

The next step is to prepare the surface by electrolytic degreasing which removes any remaining residue and improves the bonding or neutralises any residues of a degreasing agent with an acid dip.

The final stage of the plating process. This includes drying, oxidising/blackening and the use of anti-tarnish solutions.

Before oxidising or blackening, it is essential to clean and dry your piece without staining to get the best results. Blackening can be achieved by applying using a bath or with a brush. This part of the process is only suitable for Silver and Copper.

The last step is to apply an anti-tarnish solution. This is an extremely thin layer of protective film that is applied to the surface of the metal to protect it from contaminants.
