Electroplating a layer of nickel onto a metal object.
for anti-corrosive, decorative and technological (e.g. in heating components) applications
Nickel electroplating is used to improve the properties of objects made of different grades of steel. It improves hardness, corrosion resistance and wear resistance. The chemical resistance of nickel electroplated coatings results from the spontaneous formation of a passive oxide layer on their surface.
