Plating Brass on Pewter?

Would the Plug 'n Plate system work for plating brass onto pewter, which is mostly tin? If so, is it likely to be back in stock soon? Thank you.

Hi yes you can plate brass onto pewter using our plug and plate kits but depending on the tin content it may require copper plating first.

See the attached link to the user manual if you look at the chart of kits it gives you the plate type and the base metals that it will plate onto.

If you look at brass you will find it will take to tin but for pewter is shown as needing a copper strike .

Have a look and see what you think.

We do actually have all parts in stock required to make up a kit so give me a ring on 01252 560515 if you wish to place an order.
