Nickel Strike can be used for plating a key layer on to the more difficult-to-plate stainless steel alloys which will help the adhesion of subsequent plated layers.

Orders outside UK and EU

This plating solution cannot be purchased and shipped outside the UK and the EU because it’s part of our range of plating solutions which are regulated for transport.

You could substitute this with our Gold Flash Brush Plating Solution which can be shipped outside the UK and the EU. Details of this alternative product can be found by clicking on the link in the ‘Related Products’ section, below this panel.

Our Nickel Strike has been developed to help when plating on to certain grades of Stainless Steel. A number of stainless steel alloys, especially the more non-corrosive or passive ones, can prove very difficult to plate, even when using our MPU process. Please note that there are still some stainless steel alloys that are extremely passive. In this case it would be a good idea to try our Gold Strike plating solution.
