Cyanide Copper Strike Bath
Q: We want to replace our cyanide copper strike bath with a non-cyanide based strike bath. Are there any such baths available, and do they work? K. M.
A: Yes, there are a number of non-cyanide copper strike baths that work well. Your best bet is to go to www.pfonline.com and search the vendor database under copper plating. There are a large number of vendors listed and a number of these companies do offer what you are looking for. It has been my experience that these non-cyanide copper strikes work well and in most cases are an excellent replacement for the classic strike bath.
