Nickel Plating: Ontario’s Source for Watts, Sulfamate & Bright Nickel

Precision Plating offers rack, barrel and wired nickel plating on steel, stainless steel, brass, copper, zinc die-cast and cast iron.

We plate with three kinds of nickel:

  • Bright nickel
    • Used for industrial, engineering and decorative purposes
    • Brighteners added to bath can produce mirror-like finish
    • Good toughness and strength
    • Higher hardness than our other nickels
  • Sulfamate nickel
    • Pure plating containing no brighteners
    • Used as a pre-plate on electrical contacts before precious metal layer
  • Watts nickel
    • Slightly brighter finish than sulfamate nickel due to added grain refiners
    • Used as a flash to prevent base metal migration

We do nickel plating to QQ-N-290 or equivalent. Thicknesses range from 0.0002"- 0.0016".
