Nickel Plating benefits

If you are looking for an electroplating solution that has aesthetic appeal and offers functional benefits, then nickel plating is an excellent choice. Thanks to its high oxidation resistance, it provides excellent resistance against wear and corrosion, making it a durable option. Additionally, it can also be plated on other materials and serve as an undercoat as nickel can form alloys with other metals such as copper.

Types of Nickel plating we offer

With Karas Plating as your partner, you avoid poor-quality plating, production delays, and supply chain stress and benefit from the following nickel plating solutions:

Electroless nickel plating (ENP) is an immersion-based autocatalytic plating method that, unlike many similar techniques, does not require an electrical current. There are three different methods of ENP – low, medium and high phosphorous with medium being the most common process. Find out more about our electroless nickel plating service.

Electrolytic Nickel Plating also involves submerging the substrate in a bath of solution, but it requires an electrical current for the plating process. Both methods result in a thin layer of nickel being added to the target substrate, but electroless nickel plating provides several notable advantages compared to the electrolytic process.

Comparing Electroless Nickel & Electrolytic Nickel

We believe that electroless nickel plating is the perfect solution for our customers because of its ability to provide an even deposit of plating on complex components. Additionally, it offers cost benefits as it requires fewer process stages, making it a more cost-effective option.

Benefits of nickel plating

Energy efficiency: Unlike traditional electroplating methods, electroless nickel plating doesn't require an electrical current, making it more energy-efficient.

Fast and effective process: The nickel plating process is quick and efficient, allowing for high-volume production.

Excellent corrosion resistance: Nickel plating provides excellent protection against corrosion, making it a popular choice for components that will be exposed to harsh environments.

Choice of finish (Bright or dull)

Improved aesthetics: Nickel plating can improve the visual appearance of components by providing a shiny, attractive finish.

Nickel plating components


Nickel plating is a highly versatile process that finds its use in a wide range of sectors. The aviation industry uses nickel extensively because of its capability to withstand high temperatures. Similarly, the automotive industry benefits from its corrosion and wear-resistant qualities that ensure the longevity and durability of parts. These are just a few examples of how nickel plating can be useful. If you have any requirements that can benefit from the use of nickel plating, please feel free to get in touch with our team.
