Nickel Plating Screws, Fasteners and Fixings
Nickel plating, more often referred to as nickel electroplating, is often used to provide corrosion or wear resistance in a metal fastener, but can be used to build up a heavily worn, or undersized parts for salvage.
It is the process of depositing nickel on metal that is free of dirt, corrosion and defects.
The nickel plating provides high resistance to corrosion and is especially beneficial if there is likely to be wear or friction in the product as nickel does not flake or chip like other decorative finishes. It is also ideal in these situations as it provides an even coating on any fixing, even in recesses or holes.
Engineering applications for this plating can be found in a number of industries but are most commonly used in the marine, gas and oil industries.
It can be plated onto a number of substrates, including aluminium, steel and stainless steel, and brass.
