Chemicals, Equipment & Supplies For Tank Plating

All Dalmar Tank Electroplating Chemicals are made to work at room temperature, this eliminates all of the heaters, thermometers and the hassle that comes with trying to maintain a certain temperature. Nothing is worse then standing around waiting for your chemicals to heat up, or doing some other work in the mean time only to find that the chemical has boiled over or has burned from too much heat. None of our competitors can make this claim.

These items were done by one of our customers named Bill Hodges, These items are finished in the Dalmar Nickel Solution and have not been Chrome plated all though they look like Chrome. Here is what Bill had to say about our products:

"Here is some pictures of a switch plate cover and 2 doors knobs I did with your "room" temperature alkaline copper and acid nickel, I love the fact that the the baths don't need heating, sure saves money on not having to buy heaters and worry about the headache of it being the right temperature. "

Bill Hodges

Due to the volatility of the metal market, prices are subject to change without notice.

                                                       FINE TUNER

The Fine Tuner is a control box that can take a regular plating machine and enable it to electroform.
When electroforming in copper, it is necessary to control the amperage to 1/10 of an amp per square inch.
Dalmar rectifiers are controllable in this range, but rectifiers made by other companies are not. By running
the current from other company's rectifiers through our Fine Tuners, they can be made to electroform.
The Fine Tuner plugs into the negative lead on your rectifier and there is no need to open the case to connect it.
