Nickel Plating

SSG Offers Three Types of Nickel Plating to Meet Any Specification


Electrolytic Sulfamate Plating

This process yields a low-stress deposit with excellent ductility. Parts plated with electrolytic sulfamate nickel can be bent, formed or crimped without damage to the nickel-plated layer. SSG’s sulfamate nickel coating performs well at high temperatures and is corrosionresistant. Electrolytic sulfamate nickel has high dimensional accuracy with typical thickness of 100-700 micro-inches. SSG’s automated, high-volume plating line is capable of plating using the rack or barrel method, and is excellent for buildup of mis-machined parts.

Electroless Plating

Electroless nickel plating is used to deposit an ultra-bright, consistent nickel coating. Low-medium phosphorous electroless nickel yields a finish for industrial and engineering applications in which excellent hardness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance are all of primary importance. This plating material is especially resistant to alkaline and acidic environments, and has lubricity characteristics.

Quality In Plating…
