Our Nickel Strike for Brush Plating 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 which case, Gold Strike solution may be a better alternative.

  1. Using nickel electrodes is strongly advised as this eliminates the risk of production of chlorine gas.
  2. Higher voltages may be useful when treating difficult-to-plate stainless alloys.
  3. We do not advise the use of platinum electrodes as this could sevelely reduce the operational life of the platinum coating.
