Currentless plating

With the help of our Star products, non-ferrous metals can be gilded or silver-plated without accessories. Chromating provides protection and visually attractive results on zinc. Thanks to our conductive lacquers, real metal surfaces can be created and, with the help of electroplating, electrically conductive layers can in turn be produced.

Copper conductive paint (400 ml)
Description of the article: Tifoo Copper conductive paint (400 ml) – the product features at a glance: 400 ml of conductive copper paint for electroplating for airbrush and brush makes non-conductive material conductive plating plants and natural objects easy and filigree application This galvanic conductive paint on copper base from Tifoo allows you to plate works of art and gifts made of glass, pottery, plastic and a lot of other material with a bright layer of metal in a short time. Just apply a thin layer of the conductive paint with a brush on the cleaned surface. The copper conductive paste dries until rub-proff in 10 to 15 minutes and therefore allows a quick treatment of the workpieces. The complete drying for perfect resistance on stressed surfaces takes about 12 to 36 hours at room temperature. The varnish can be diluted with butyl acetate. In the next step, the object is connected to a wire and copper-plated in the acidic copper electrolyte from Tifoo. A resistant copper layer will then be deposited. The last step can be used for nickel-plating, silver-plating or even gilding! Thanks to its low price and the high electrical and thermical conductiveness, the conductive copper varnish is the perfect alternative to the conductive silver varnish. Please keep in mind that the first step has to consist in copper-plating in the acidic copper electrolyte because the conductive varnish won't be activated before. After copper-plating, the metal layer will be wear-resistant. Suitable material: synthetic material, glass, pottery, plants, wood and a lot of other non-conductive material Drying time: 5-15 minutes (rub-proof), 1-3 days (complete for maximal requirements) 20 mL are enough for a surface of up to one square metre - very efficient!Shipping notes: As this item is classified as "hazardous" by REACH / GHS, international shipment is subject to special regulations of the carrier.

Yellow chromate conversion coating (1000 ml)
Description of the article: Tifoo Yellow chromate conversion coating (1000 ml) – the product features at a glance: yellow to golden finish for zinc and zinc-plated objects ideal as finish for the Tifoo zinc plating solution simple immersion bath, no power supply or accessories available 1000 ml content, completely free from highly toxic chromium(VI) also dyes blue passivated zinc parts yellow, e.g. screws and bolts from the DIY superstore The long-standing common chromium(VI) yellow chromate conversion coating is not allowed in Germany any more, not even for commercial users. This is why TIFOO has developped an alternative based on the much less problematic chromium(III). Yellow chromate passivated parts are aesthetic, non-corrosive and essential for all those who work with, for example, vintage cars. The Tifoo yellow passivation creates a shade that is very similar to a chrome(VI) chromate conversion coating. This shade resembles brass - like the old chromate conversion. Also the iridescence effect of the yellow layer is present. The chromate conversion of zinc and zinc workpieces is done simply by dipping the object into the yellow chromate conversion. Without further tools, you will create a yellow passivation layer within a few minutes. During the passivation, some of the zinc will be removed, or better said, dissolved, so please guarantee that the zinc layer is thick enough (>= 2 µm). This is especially valid if you zinc-plated your workpieces yourself with our TIFOO zinc plating solution. You can cancel this process by taking the workpiece out of the bath and rinsing with distilled water. Should the effect be too weak, just put the workpiece again into the bath until the desired shade is achieved. You can obtain shades from weak bright yellow until golden yellow. Scope of delivery: 1000 ml yellow chromate conversion coating (ready to use)

Blue chromate conversion coating
Description of the article: Tifoo Blue chromate conversion coating – the product features at a glance: Ideal finish for zinc-plated layers Permanent protection for the zinc layers Ideally to be used with the Tifoo Zinc electrolyte 1000 ml content Excellent for beginners in the hobby electroplating The chromate conversion coating is a quick corrosion protection for zinc and aluminium surfaces. Apply the protection layers (chromate layers) with the Tifoo Blue Chromate Conversion Coating (also called thick film passivation) and give zinc a noble finish. The term chromate conversion coating / thick film passivation of zinc describes the blue undertone that the tin surface will have after the treatment. The chromate conversion coating is realized by dipping the object in a bath of Tifoo Blue Chromate Conversion Bluing. Without the need of any voltage or of working with other tools, you will obtain a thin layer of chemical conversion. The zinc surface is lightly removed with the thick film passivation. The zinc layer should consequently not be too thin, for that can cause erosion of the zinc. Please keep in mind that this is a Cr (III) based variation of blue chromate conversion coating (thick film passivation). The current version based on Cr (VI) isnt allowed anymore in Germany for chromate conversion coating by the directive of the RoHS because of the toxicity of Cr (VI). Tifoo Blue Chromate Conversion Coating – the perfect corrosion protection for zinc surfaces. Easy self-made chromate conversion coating!
