Universal Plater KitGold Plating Services
Universal Plater Kit Some bench top plating projects require treatment or plating with 2 or 3 consecutive steps; for example you may want to plate with copper then nickel followed by gold plating. The Universal Plater gives you the equipment you need to quickly set up and plate these projects without the bother of constantly changing tips, handles or solution beakers.
Gold plating is a fun satisfying process that can be incorporated into many different types of businesses or personal projects. The Universal Plater Kit comes with complete instructions and everything needed for gold plating onto most plateable metallic surfaces. With the Universal Plater gold plating is easy to learn; the kit includes a step-by-step tutorial that guarantees your first plating experience will be fun and successful. If you ever have questions about other types of work we provide unlimited free technical support. You will have access to our many years of plating experience.
*This kit is not capable of stripping chrome. Please refer to our Universal Plater - Chrome Edition if you need to strip chrome prior to plating. Chrome Stripping Solution will not work with this version.

Aluminum - Bare aluminum cannot be plated onto with any of our kits. Aluminum requires a specialized under-plate process that is not suitable for consumer level plating operations. This process must be performed on an industrial level by trained professionals. We do not sell the process or provide support for plating onto unprepared aluminum surfaces. Any attempts to plate onto bare aluminum with our products will not work, please purchase with this in mind.
If you have a project that requires plating onto aluminum, you may consider sending the parts to Gold Plating Services to be plated by our technicians. We can provide the required nickel under-plate for a nominal charge. We can then gold plate, or chrome plate your item or return it with the nickel under-plate. After the aluminum has the proper nickel plate it can then be plated with the metal you desire using our Universal or Jewel Master Series kits.

A pleasure to buy from. Excellent in every way
I haven’t used it yet but I have gotten such excellent service from them. They have so much info with videos, written instructions, helpful people who you speak to when you call to ask questions, or when placing an order. You can submit questions about all products, right next to the item. I was so lucky that i saw this kit when I did , as i got this for $150 off.. They pack your order very well and ship the same day. Just wish they would send an email with the daily sale items every day as they sell so many things and you have to look thru them all to see what is on sale. This is really a wonderful business as they run it the way businesses used to run. Terrific.
Thank you so very much, Eudice! We are so glad that we were able to assist you with all your questions and get you started with your new kit! We can't wait to see your results!
very easy to use awesome product and great customer support when experimenting lol!
