The term “green brush-plating” is an oxymoron to anyone who has seen how brush plating is done. Until Oceanit unveiled its green brush-plating process, called SOAP (System of Advanced Plating) on a Stick, there had been no significant advances in brush plating since the 1800s. The conventional brush-plating process remained operator-sensitive, generated hazardous waste, and required constant hazardous solution recirculation.

Oceanit’s patented technology combines a moldable solid electrolyte of metal such as copper or nickel with a graphite rod electrode. Rubbing SOAP and water on the surface for plating activates the process, reducing waste and cost with a simple time-saving procedure.
