Nickel Processes

Nickel Plating Solutions:

Super-Bright Nickel SLOTONIK 20

Slotonik 20 is a modern, bright-nickel plating bath, suitable for rack plating.

The deposits are fully bright and highly ductile with excellent throwing power.

Levelling is first class even with thin deposits and chromability is impressive.  The separate brightener and leveller additives enable the user to generate reproducible finishes over a wide range of requirements.

Bright Nickel SLOTONIK 30

The deposits from this high quality nickel electrolyte are fully bright and highly ductile with excellent throwing power and good levelling properties.

The solution is particularly suitable for barrel plating, operating over a wide current density range.

Super-Bright Nickel SLOTONIK 50

Superbright Nickel SLOTONIK 50 meets all the demands of a modern top quality nickel rack-plating electrolyte.  The deposits are fully bright and highly ductile with excellent throwing power and excellent levelling even with thin deposits.  The deposit is receptive to chrome plating.

The solution is easy to operate and can be air or mechanically agitated.

Semi-Bright Nickel SLOTONIK SB

Suitable for rack or barrel plating, this nickel process produces uniform semi-bright deposits over a current density range of 2-7 A/dm2  (rack) and 0.4-2 A/dm² (barrel).  It is operated at a pH of 3.8-4.5.

The solution is tolerant to impurities and produces extremely ductile deposits with excellent levelling properties.

Nickel Bath NORMA

Used generally in the electrical and electronics fields as an intermediate layer on various components this reliable nickel is operated mainly without additives.

The electrolyte produces light and relatively uniform nickel coatings on untarnished surfaces, the deposit being very ductile and extremely active, both important factors for subsequent electroplating.

Nickel Sulphamate MS

This sulphamate electrolyte is particularly suitable for the deposition of highly ductile thick nickel deposits with low internal tensile stress for use in the engineering, electronics and electroforming fields. 

It can be operated over a wide range of conditions: at temperatures from 50-60oC at pH 4.0: and at current densities from below 7.5A/dm2 up to about 43A/dm2.  Internal stress in the deposit is determined mainly by the chloride content and to a lesser extent by the pH. 

The deposit characteristics are also influenced by the single BFL additive used.

Nickel Ancillaries:

Nickel Sulphamate 65% w/w

Purified Nickel Sulphamate solution.

Nickel Salts & Concentrates

High purity Nickel Sulphate, Nickel Chloride, Nickel Sulphamate and Boric Acid.

Nickel Additive G2 

Inhibits the co-deposition of zinc in nickel baths.  It also prevents passivation of nickel deposition and dark discoloration in low current density areas.

Nickel Anodes

We supply Electrolytic and ‘S’ type anode materials to suit your needs.

Sulphuric Acid Pure 1.84

Pure sulphuric acid, suitable for the maintenance of copper, nickel and a variety of processes.

Nickel Stripping Processes:

Stripper L

Stripper L is an alkaline cyanide based process for the stripping of a variety of metals from steel.

This process is capable of effective stripping of nickel, electroless-nickel, copper, cadmium, zinc and tin.

The base metal is not attacked so subsequent re-plating is possible without the need for further finishing.

Stripper N10

An alkaline, cyanide-free process for the stripping of nickel from steel, copper, brass and silver.

Stripper N10 can also be used to strip nickel coatings on some magnesium alloys and 10% electroless nickel coatings from steel.

Stripper L10

This sulphuric acid based immersion-stripping solution is formulated for the stripping of nickel and tin from copper and brass without attack on the base materials.
