Nickel finishes are available for almost any need. Nickel Plating is applied over an underplating of copper or yellow brass on zinc and zinc and zinc based alloys. Nickel can be deposited either soft or hard, with dull to bring finishes depending on the process used. The color of the resulting Nickel finish can be similar to stainless steel or a dull gray, almost white finish.

The corrosion resistance of a nickel finish is a function of thickness, and the thickness of nickel plating finishes are described as follows:
  • Grade A   .0016"
  • Grade B   .0012"
  • Grade C   .0010"
  • Grade D   .0008"
  • Grade E   .0006"
  • Grade F   .0004"
  • Grade G   .0002"
Steel parts having a tensile strength of 220,000 or greater shall not be nickel plated without specific approvals.
