What is Nickel Plating?

Nickel plating or electroplating is the process of plating a thin layer of nickel onto a metal object. The nickel layer can be decorative, aid in preventing corrosion resistance as well as wear resistance. It is also used to enhance and revitalize worn and undersized parts for salvage purposes. These parts, before being nickel-plated, must be clean and free of dirt, corrosion and defects before plating can begin. A decorative bright nickel is used in a wide range of applications. Nickel plating offers a high luster finish as well. In the automotive industry, nickel can be found on bumpers, rims, exhaust pipes and the trim. Hand tools, household items such as lighting and plumbing fixtures, wire racks, firearms and appliances can all be nickel-plated.

Bright Nickel Plating

Bright nickel plating is a similar aspect of this plating process. The overall purpose is to add the bright nickel plating to an item. And done so by submitting it to an electric current. This plating produces a bright mirror-like finish, which is due to its elevated sulfur content. By the end of the plating, the item has improved conductivity. However, bright nickel plating is not as resistant to corrosion as the regular process. But on the flip side, the end result hides polishing lines and other imperfections better. Giving the item more of a lust.

This process applies to steel, aluminum, copper, brass and iron and sports a clean and bright finish as the end result. It is the ideal process to use as a base for other electroplating coatings to help increase the overall brightness. This is the ideal sort of plating service for lighting fixtures, like chandeliers, sconces and lamps. At Luis Restorations, we proudly offer other electroplating services.
