The electrolytic deposit of nickel is a galvanic process that takes hold both in engineering and decorative field.

The purpose of this treatment is to change the surface features of the processed material such as hardness, resistance to atmospheric agents etc.

Nickel plating can be Matte or Glossy and nowadays it’s one of the techniques mainly used in furniture and furnishing field.

Nickel plating in short

These coatings are obtained by adding suitable organic additives to the conventional technical baths.

Nickel plating is obtained by dissolving an electrode (anode) and depositing nickel ions on the surface of another electrode (cathode- the piece to be plated). This is made possible by the current flow applied between the anode (positive) and the cathode (negative).
