NICKEL PLATING

Bright and Dull

Electro nickel plating, also known as nickel electro-deposition, is becoming an increasingly popular process for a variety of different manufacturing applications. Electro nickel plating is a process that uses an electrical current to coat a conductive material, typically made of metal, with a thin layer of nickel. Other metals used for electroplating include stainless steel, copper, zinc, and platinum.
 

Key characteristics:

  • attractive looking, decorative layer

  • corrosion and wear resistant

  • different bath compositions can be used for very differing applications

  • can be applied on a wide variety of substrate materials

  • often a good underlayer for other surface coatings.
