About the Process

Nickel plating is a process used to electroplate a thin layer of nickel onto a metal part. This plating can be used for corrosion and wear resistance, as well as for decorative purposes. Once parts are cleaned of debris, they are submerged into an electrolyte solution. A nickel anode is then dissolved into the solution and deposited onto the part, which acts as the cathode in the reaction.
