Common Uses of Electroless Nickel Plating

Our previous blog posts have featured the uses of electroless nickel plating primarily in the manufacturing industry. Electroless nickel plating, however, is very versatile and can be used for a number of architectural and even domestic purposes.

For example, household items, taps, bathroom and kitchen accessories can all be nickel plated to achieve an attractive and hard wearing finish. Electroless nickel plating can also be used in the plumbing industry for showers, pipework, taps and accessories. It can even be used to plate garden furniture (see picture) as it’s excellent corrosion resistance and resistance to the elements means that it is a far better material for this purpose than wood or plastic.

Electroless nickel plating can also be used extensively for architectural purposes, such as hinges, locks, door knobs and handrails. It is also used in the refurbishment of hotels and shops to refinish existing fixtures and fittings.

Here at NiTEC, we welcome all types of nickel plating project, no matter how small or large. With the biggest nickel plating tanks in the UK, we are often asked to plate very large components. We also welcome smaller, public one off components and home projects.

The versatility of electroless nickel plating means that its advantages can be enjoyed for a wide range of purposes.
