I use a Electro plating solution of Zinc chloride,potassium chloride & Boric acid
powder. As a result color is dull & rough. What composition of solution to use for excellent brightening?

You will have to use Brighteners/additive systems to get the required result.It is advisable to buy it from the dealers of supply houses. In west bengal there are so many; Artek, Atotech, CMF, CMP, G&W, GTZ,Riko are some of the well knowns. Buy from somebody who is ready to give after sales service!

Sorry, but brightener formulations are the most precious trade secrets held by any plating process supplier. You license them from the developer; you won't find any publicly available information except perhaps in patents. You may be able to find expired patents though. Good luck.
