Nickel Electroplating – What Is It?

Nickel Electroplating: Explained

There are many companies that offer nickel electroplating services. However, if you’re looking for one of the best, look no further than E.C. Williams Ltd.

Like all electroplated coatings, nickel plating is a thin layer of nickel we can deposit onto several types of underlying metal. The nickel coating is normally deposited together with organic brighteners. This gives it a highly decorative appearance. Alternatively, we can reduce the amount of brightener, in order to give a more ductile coating for those components that need to be crimped or manipulated after plating.

Nickel electroplating gives a high level of corrosion resistance making it particularly useful in the plumbing industry. Nickel is also a good conductor of electricity and so is much used in electrical switch and components.

Unlike zinc plating, nickel electroplating is a very hard coating making it more wear resistant and impact tolerant.
