Nickel electroplating is a process of depositing nickel onto a metal part. The nickel layer can be decorative, provide corrosion resistance, wear resistance, or used to build up worn or undersized parts for salvage purposes.

We offer three different types of nickel plating, listed below:

  • Nickel Chloride
  • Mid-Phosphorous Electroless Nickel
  • Nickel Sulfamate


This plating method is more conventional, in that the part to be plated, is made the cathode in a electric circuit. The nickel is then deposited via from the ions in solution. Typical thickness is .0002″ – .0005″, but can vary slightly.


This method of plating is what is known as an autocatalytic reaction, which facilitates a chemical reaction between the part, and solution, No electricity required, typical thickness is also .0002″ – .0005″, but can go up to a .001″ or more if requested.
