Additive N is the base make-up component in making Woods Nickel Strike into a "Ready to Use" solution. Due to restrictions on shipping hydrochloric acid internationally, we cannot send Woods Nickel Strike as a ready to use solution. Fortunately, Additive N can easily be used to fabricate Wood's Nickel Strike Solution by following the instructions included with your purchase.
To make a ready-to-use Woods Nickel Strike you will need:
-Hydrochloric Acid (or Muriatic Acid)
-Distilled (or de-ionized water)
Wood's Nickel Strike is used as an activator for Steel and Stainless Steel or high chromium content alloys, prior to gold plating.
You must first Electroclean the piece until it wets out and then Strike using the Woods Nickel Strike in order to ensure adhesion.
This solution requires a Pure Nickel Anode.
