TM109 Electrolytic Nickel Plating

Electrolytic Nickel plating is traditionally used to improve a part’s wear, abrasion and corrosion resistance — although this coating is commonly seen as a solution for the repair of components. This process also is referred to as electroplating Nickel.

Techmetals provides an electroplating finish to accommodate our clients in industries such as printing, defense and oil and gas to name a few.

Electrolytic Nickel Plating

An electrolytic nickel deposit of the purest nickel providing a soft ductile coating of
approximately 20 Rockwell C hardness. It has outstanding corrosion resistance, solderability, magnetic characteristics and resists oxidation at high temperatures.

Coating thickness up to .250” are not uncommon. Techmetals currently handles large size and high-production parts with a 5-ton capacity and tanks up to 10-feet in length. TM 109 is ideal when a pure, stress free, machinable and corrosion resistant deposit
is required.

Benefits of Electroplating Nickel:

  • Machinable deposit used in the repair of components eliminating the remanufacturing costs
  • Plating for a range of base materials
  • Custom masking services can be selectively applied
