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.
