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.
