With this special copper activator you can apply our redox nickel to copper or copper alloys. For this purpose, the activator deposits a thin layer of catalytically active palladium on the copper material and thus serves as preparation for electroless nickel plating, as otherwise the deposition of the redox nickel would not take place.
Suitable materials for the copper activator are:
-Clean the workpiece to be coated thoroughly and degrease it (Caution: Do not touch the workpiece with your hands after degreasing!).
-Immerse the workpiece in the copper activator for 5 to 30 minutes at room temperature.
-Rinse the workpiece briefly but thoroughly with water.
-The workpiece is now ready for further coating with Dr. Galva's "Redox Nickel
Important: Do not mix the copper activator with the redox nickel, as this can lead to decomposition!
Labelling of the mixture:
(contains sulphuric acid)
