Chemical nickel plating of steel objects up to 1.2m in length weighing up to 500kg.

The total volume of electrolyte for chemical nickel plating is 2,800 liters. There is a possibility of increasing the capacity of the existing production line.

Chemical nickel coatings are applied in order to increase the surface hardness, reduce the friction coefficient, increase resistance to wear and corrosion, as well as to increase resistance to abrasion of components subjected to mechanical load and having an operating temperature lower than 400°C, or the ones that are not mechanically loaded, but operate on temperatures lower than 500°C.

Chemical nickel coatings are not applied to cadmium, zinc, zinc alloys, lead, bismuth, tin, antimony, on nitrided surfaces of objects, as well as on metal assemblies coupled by soft soldering.

Note: If more hardness scale is required, coating components are thermally processed.

Nickel plated objects are commonly made of steel, but after adequate preparation, components made of aluminum, copper or other metals may also be nickel plated.
