Nickel plating

Electroplating a layer of nickel onto a metal object.

METALS COATED
chromium-nickel steel
METHOD(S) USED
rack plating
LAYER THICKNESS
10-50µm
APPLICATION
for anti-corrosive, decorative and technological (e.g. in heating components) applications
ADVANTAGES

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.
