Electrolytic Nickel Plating
Our Electrolytic Nickel Plating Services
Nickel plating involves the electrodeposition of a thin coating of nickel metal onto the surface of another metal object, or substrate. Nickel plating gives surfaces a finished look and is useful in applications such as:
Cycle and marine industries
In addition to appearance, nickel plating can enhance part performance, including:
Wear and corrosion resistance
In many cases, pieces receive nickel coating before a topcoat of another metal finish like gold or brass.
Copper Plating Can Complement Nickel
Copper plating is an effective undercoat in many nickel plating applications. Copper is essential when plating zinc die-cast alloys to avoid diffusion of the nickel. In other instances, your application may require copper to add a ductile underlay, provide additional leveling or to assist in bonding certain difficult-to-plate metals like lead-containing alloys.
