Additive N - Wood Nickel Strike Concentrate for International CustomersPre-Treatment Solutions
"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 Electro-clean 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.
Check out our Plating Procedure Chart for details about our products and how to use them.
