Nickel and nickel alloys

Electroplated nickel is a coating consisting of pure nickel that is electrolytically deposited. Usually, multilayer systems such as Cu/Ni or Cu/Ni/Cr are deposited. Iron or steel can be protected against corrosion by applying a nickel layer. With so-called double nickel coatings it is possible to further increase corrosion protection. Electroplated nickel layers are generally used as optical corrosion protection layers or as a basis for subsequent soldering processes. Appropriate additives are added to the nickel electrolytes to produce high-gloss or matt-structured layers.
