Bright Nickel Plating

We use a proprietary bright Nickel solution, designed to deliver extremely white deposits, which is ideal for use under chrome. Bright nickel can be deposited on steel and aluminium and is often used to produce a stainless steel like appearance.

Our bright nickel plating process is ideal for decorative and cosmetic applications. It offers good corrosion resistance with high levelling and ultra-white nickel deposits. Nickel is also used for engineering purposes where brightness is not the primary factor.
