"Cadmium or zinc plating at home"



2005

Can some one tell me if there is a safe way to zinc/ copy cad plate at home.

Nope.

Don't even think about it.

Acid chloride zinc is probably one of the "safest" plating processes I'm familiar with and it still involves some very corrosive chemicals. You can't just plate something. It is a process consisting of quite a few different steps.

Cadmium is another critter altogether. Nasty stuff. Not many platers will use it unless they absolutely have to.
