During chemical nickel plating we obtain hard nickel and phosphor layers, from semi-gloss to full gloss.
The deposition of chemical nickel leads to a completely even distribution of the coating. Varied phosphorus content in nickel coatings provides a broad range of applications for corrosion and abrasion protection.
Compared to nickel coatings obtained using the galvanic method, the coatings produced with the chemical method are characterised by the following:
- very good and even distribution of thickness over the surface, even in the case of complex and irregular shapes;
- coatings are consistent and independent of the surface structure;
- they have much greater hardness, which can be further increased by heat treatment: 450-700 HV 0.2 – after heating at 400oC up to 1200 HV 0.2;
- better corrosion resistance in aggressive chemical environments;
- improved abrasion resistance;
- plasticity and hardness after heat treatment may correspond to technical chromium resistance;
- good solderability and adhesion;
The process meets the following standards: MIL-C-26074, SD25, ST001, ST002, ST003 and PN-EN ISO 4527
Maximum dimensions of parts: 1350[mm] x 500[mm] x 700[mm] and 2200[mm] x 900[mm] x 1000[mm].
