This slimline 5 Amp power supply provides up to 80W of power, still plenty of grunt for many smaller Electroplating Kits. It is an ideal power supply for our 4 or 10 Litre size Electroplating and Electroforming Kits. It is also an ideal alternative for our Gold Plating Kits. (NOTE; If you are purchasing a 20 Litre Kit or larger, please consider the upgraded 40 Amp Power Supply. This will ensure you have enough current (amps) available).
This unit is able to provide a constant Volts or constant Current (amps) which allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is a must for electroplating. This allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is not a feature of our 15 Amp power supply. Simply select your power range, then adjust the controls to obtain your desired outputs. It has a variable output and current from 0 to 5A. Available are 0-16V @ 0-5A, 0-27VDC @ 0-3A, and 0-36V @ 0-2.2A. Output voltage and current are displayed on large, easily read seven segment LED displays. Output is provided via banana sockets which will accept insulated banana plugs. Includes banana to alligator clamp leads. Incredibly compact in size and light, weighing only 1 kg.
The amount of current (amps) required for electroplating is determined by the total amount of surface area that is in the plating bath. Larger Kit sizes (eg. 20 litres and above) allow more surface area to be plated at one time and therefore more current (amps) are required. This high powered dual controlled switchmode power supply will deliver up to 40 amps which is ideal for our larger Kits. This unit is able to provide a constant Volts or constant Current (amps) which allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is a must for electroplating. It has a variable output voltage from 1 to 15VDC and variable current from 0 to 40A. It features overload, short circuit, over temperature and tracking over voltage protected. Output voltage and current are displayed on large, easily read seven segment LED displays and incorporates an intelligent fan control program that checks the fan at power on and adapts the right speed to ensure a quiet and efficient operation. The maximum current output is 40 amperes continuous. Incredibly light, weighing only 2.9Kgs. Includes mains power cable and positive and negative power cables.
Clear Shield 250ml – Clear Thermoplastic Acrylic Lacquer
$18.00 Inc Gst
250 ml jar. Clear Shield is a clear thermoplastic acrylic lacquer with outstanding adhesion to bare metals. The acrylic polymer used in the lacquer has a unique molecular structure that penetrates and locks it into the surface of bare and electroplated metals. A property not found in other acrylic polymers.
The lacquer contains a corrosion inhibitor that is chemically absorbed into the surface of copper and its alloys (brass, bronze etc). The corrosion inhibitor also reduces attacks on aluminium, steel, cadmium, zinc, nickel, silver etc.
Clear Shield lacquer can be applied by brush, spray or dip. Special leveling agents eliminate brush marks and assist in achieving an even, flat coverage. For optimum long-term weathering and corrosion resistance, clear film build of 25 microns is recommended. The excellent flexibility allows the coated articles to sustain knocks without the lacquer chipping or flaking off.
Clear Shield lacquer has excellent leveling and air drying characteristics and fast solvent release. The lacquer is touch dry in 20-30 minutes. The lacquer will reach hardness after 24 hours of air drying. The hardness continues to increase over a period.
For industrial applications, the lacquer may be baked at temperatures up to 150 DegC, with no yellowing or reduction in physical characteristics. Baking increases hardness and resistance to solvents.
Clear Shield lacquer exhibits excellent knife adhesion to bare copper, brass and cold rolled steel. Optimum knife adhesion occurs 7 days after application of the film.
It is not recommended that Clear Shield be thinned prior to or during application. Some commercial thinners may affect the gloss, corrosion resistance under the film and or the film clarity. A trial of thinners should be conducted by the user. Quality paint or lacquer thinners should be used during clean up. Under no circumstances can mineral turpentine be used.
Clear Shield Thermoplastic Acrylic Lacquer is suitable for all bare and electroplated metals, including; Copper, Brass, Bronze, Silver, 24 Carat Gold, Aluminium, Magnesium Alloys, Steel, Zinc die castings, Nickel, Cobalt-Nickel, Electroless Nickel, Zinc, Chromated / Passivated Zinc, Blackened Steel, Parkerised Steel, Electroformed items etc.

The Jane Kits story began when John, a vintage motorbike restorer realised that it would be much more convenient and economical if he was able to plate his own parts in the home workshop. So John decided to source and create his own plating kit and hence Jane Kits was born. John went on to receive numerous awards for his meticulously restored bikes with parts plated using his ingenious new kit.
