Like chrome, nickel is one of the transition metals. It is often used for corrosion protection because of its goods resistance to air and water. It is also often used as a diffusion barrier, for example in a chrome plating process. It is used in many applications in the automotive and mechanical engineering industries because of its high-gloss and corrosion-resistant properties.
Nickel surfaces have a long tradition at Rieger Metallveredlung. We have already successfully introduced two patents to the market. Both focused on the nickel plating of aluminium. With us you therefore have a specialist in aluminium electroplating in the area of nickel plating and the associated upstream processes – such as copper plating – and the downstream processes – such as chrome plating.
