Black Nickel Plating in San Diego
Decorative Metal Coatings Company provides innovation in decorative and functional Black Nickel Plating in San Diego. Our expertise in providing precision barrel, rack, and vibratory black nickel plating services is currently employed in numerous industries.
Decorative Metal Coatings offers a wide range of Black Nickel Plating Services ranging from bright “jet-black” deposits to satin “charcoal gray” finishes. The characteristics and appearance of our Black Nickel Plating Services in San Diego are a function of the basic material and/or underplating that is plated prior to the black nickel topcoat. Generally speaking, a highly polished substrate with a bright nickel underplate will result in a jet-black, bright finish often referred to as a “black chrome” appearance.
Conversely, a matte or satin substrate such as a machined or grained surface coupled with a satin nickel underplate such as electroless nickel will produce a satin charcoal gray appearance. The corrosion performance of Decorative Metal Coatings’s black nickel plating services is primarily a function of the total finishing system. If a specific corrosion performance is required the type, thickness and number of underplates used can be engineered to meet your finishing requirements.
Black Nickel Plating Services in San Diego
Decorative Metal Coatings’s Black Nickel Plating services are a co-deposit of tin and nickel in a common plated layer. As a result, the black nickel properties are a mix of that of nickel plating and tin plating. The hardness of the black nickel deposit is consistent with nickel deposits. However, due to its relatively thin deposit thickness of 1um (0.00004 inches), it can be susceptible to break through in high wear applications. Black nickel plating services by Artistic can be certified RoHS Compliant. Decorative Metal Coatings’s black nickel plating services provide a highly conductive surface and have excellent “throw” or ability to plate uniformly on complex geometries.
The co-deposited tin in the black nickel affords an inherent lubricity exceeding that of common nickel deposits. An underplate of electroless nickel can further enhance the lubricity of the overall deposit. Black nickel can be used where high emissivity is required such as optics, solar panel applications, aerospace and defense weapons systems.
