Electroless nickel plating, also known as chemical or autocatalytic nickel plating, is an immersion process in which nickel is precipitated from a solution without using an electric current.
Reasons to nickel-plate objects include corrosion protection, wear resistance, and aesthetics. Aesthetics involve enhancing the appearance of components using steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, and their alloys.
MVT’s well-equipped workshops can handle a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and quantities.
