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.
Electro Sealer 250ml – Clear Water Based Electroforming Sealer
$18.00 Inc Gst
Electro Sealer is a clear water-based electroforming sealer used for sealing the surface of all items prior to applying the electroforming Conductive Paint. Any items, including, organic, shells, wax, plastic, ceramic, foam, rubber or fabric items will require sealing with the Electro Sealer prior to the conductive paint. However, it is recommended to seal everything you are attempting to electroform. Once applied, this sealer enables you to fill the tiny pores and or bridge the gaps so that the conductive paint will cover efficiently and therefore enable the Copper plating material to finish successfully. This sealer step is crucial to the overall success of electroforming. Patience should be paramount to ensure a complete seal, cutting corners here will punish your end results.
Electro Sealer can be thinned with distilled water if required but is recommended to be used neat. It can be brushed, dipped, rolled or sprayed (using a suitable airless spray applicator). Several thin coats should be applied with suitable drying time between coats. Overall drying time depends on thickness applied and the type of material or item. Applying at least two coats will be necessary for any item. Ensure the sealer is completely dry prior to applying the coat of conductive paint. Clean-up in water.

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.
