Nickel Plating Services

AMF ltd offers, Nickel plating Service all over India. To meet, ever-rising demands of our clients.

 

Nickel plating process involves creating an outer coating of nickel,  to inhibit corrosion or to enhance the appearance of the parent metal.

It is usually done by immersing the metal in an acid solution with an anode electric current and cathode. The material to be plated is made the cathode (negative electrode) of an electrolysis cell through which a direct electric current is passed. The solution or bath contains the required metal in an oxidized form (either as a complex ion or aquatic cation).

The anode is usually a bar of the metal being plated.

During the electrolysis process, the metal is deposited on the work and the metal from the bar dissolves. The process is governed by Faraday’s law of electrolysis.

In addition to these decorative application, electroplated and electroless nickel are also widely used in defense, automobile, aerospace, sanitary industries. Application includes

  • Machined parts

  • press tools

  • molds

  • printing industry

Nickel plating , most widely used in automobile industry.  A finish called bright chromium plating, have the largest single application, providing a combination of protection against corrosion ,resistance, wear, tolerance to high temperature and a decorative appeal which is possessed by few other coating system. The chromium layer serves to preserve the appearance of plating and also to improve the protective value of the coating system. A bright nickel chrome finish is the more usual but considerable use is now made of satin nickel chrome finishes.

Types of Nickel Plating ?

  • Bright Nickel

  • Semi Bright Levelling Nickel

  • Dull Nickel

  • Barrel Nickel

  • Satin Nickel

  • 6.Black Nickel

NICKEL PLATING IS USED FOR?

1.ADHESION

NICKEL ELECTRODEPOITS ARE STRONGLY BONDED TO THE SUBSTRATE INDEED  ADHESION WILL BE STRONG. ADHESION IS GENERALLY EVEALUTED BY BENDING TWISING, FILING OR BURNISING

2.DUCTILITY

THE ELOGATION OF ADDITIVE FREE NICKEL PLATING IS UP TO 30% UNDER OPTIUM CONDITION. SEMI BRIGHT NICKEL PROVIDES MORE DUCTILITY WHEN COMPARE TO BRIGHT NICKEL AS BRIGHT NICKEL  HAS MORE ADDITIVE THAN SEMI BRIGHT NICKEL

3.CORROSION RESISTANCE

 

NICKEL CHROME PLATING INCREASE LIFE OF SUBSTRATE BY 2X AND EVEN ON SOME PARTS UP TO 3X. NICKEL CHROME PLATING  ACT AS A SUICIDAL LAYER FOR THE SUBSTRATE. MOST COMMON TEST IS CASS TEST TO KNOW THE LIFE OF PRODUCT.
