Nickel Plating

Nickel Plating

Electroplating is to deposite a metal on a conductive surface of workpiece, usually on a metal one. Some of benefits for plating include: increased resistance to corrosion, improved hardness, superior strength, resistance to wear, improved IR reflectivity improved ductility, improved solderability, improved paint adhesion, altered conductivity and for other purposes.

 

Different plating chemicals incorporated into the process deliver anything from a semi-bright and fully bright cosmetic effect, matte or satin finishes. The main benefits for nickel plating is likely cosmetic and anti rust purpose.
