Nickel Plating

Nickel is white lustrous metal. It has high mechanical strength, is fairly hard and at room temperatures is ferro-magnetic. It oxidizes only with difficulty even when heated in air; polished surfaces will gradually corrode on atmospheric exposure. Nickel is slowly soluble in hydrochloric and also in dilute sulphuric acid. Dilute nitric acid rapidly attacks nickel, but immersion in concentrated sulphuric acid renders the surface of the nickel ‘passive’, in which state it is not readily attacked. Nickel may be deposited as a bright , semi-bright or dull coating. For decorative finishes the presence of excessive stress, brittleness or of low ductility could result in premature failure of the coating.

Nickel is the most widely used electroplated deposit and its largest single application is as a decorative finish in which the nickel deposit is followed by bright chromium. This finish , generally known as ‘bright chromium plate’ provides a combination of protection against corrosion, resistance to wear, tolerance of high temperatures. These decorative applications electroplated and electrolessnickel are also widely used in industry.

Why Choose Us

Gujarat Industries’s extensive plating and electroplating expertise enables us to offer unique product design, prototype and production capabilities to our valued customers. Advanced surface engineering processes, such as electroplating, are used to protect, improve the appearance, insulate; or increase the corrosion protection, conductivity, solderability, or modify the surface of the substrate material.

Our electroplating capabilities are specifically adapted for application-specific processes including:

  • Deposition of a wide range of coating materials
  • Reel-to-reel manufacturing optimized for high throughput
  • Selective deposition to provide localized coating on complex components
  • Our vertically integrated value chain and the ability to control the quality of all components is of utmost importance in the global markets that we serve, where the highest quality control and high-volume yields are keys to success.
    Integrated plating with design and other manufacturing process minimizes overall time to market while reducing costs, thereby augmenting our customer’s competitive advantage and position in the markets they serve.
    Gujarat Industries’s laboratories and quality control organizations are fully equipped with state-of-the-art instruments such as atomic absorption, ionic chromatography, X-ray fluorescence thickness measurement, video microscopes, cross-sectioning equipment, steam aging, salt spray test equipment, metallurgical microscopes and so on, in order to assure maintenance and consistency of high-quality plating.
