Nickel Plating

Nickel plating is a versatile surface finishing process used for decorative, engineering manufacturing purposes and electro-forming, a process of producing an all-nickel articles.

The purpose of using nickel plating for decorative is to achieve bright, smooth and mirror-like metal parts that will be used for consumer goods. Engineering requires nickel plating to make the substrate to be more resistant to corrosion.

The application of nickel plating for electroforming is to transform parts to pure nickel for commercial products like dies, molds, record stampers, textile printing screens and seamless belts.

Before carrying out the nickel plating process, you must take cognizance of factors like getting the right nickel thickness and making sure that you achieve a uniform thickness on every significant surface.
