Nickel is a silver-white metal generally used to enhance the value, utility, and lifespan of industrial equipment and components by protecting them from corrosion.  Because the properties of nickel can be controlled and varied over broad ranges, there are numerous applications for nickel plating.  The electrolytic deposit of nickel can have a very bright reflective shine, or a satin appearance, or a full-dull flat luster.

Sulfamate nickel is the most widely used electrolytic nickel. It is often used as a final plating layer and also as an underplate for precious metals. Sulfamate nickel is a pure deposit that allows soldering and brazing during later assembly steps. It is normally a dull grey to dull silver color depending upon the finish of the plated part.

Sulfamate nickel provides the lowest hardness, lowest internal stress and highest ductility of all the nickel plating systems. The finish is dull; this is an engineering finish and not a decorative finish. Sulfamate nickel has excellent solderability and good corrosion resistance. The high ductility of sulfamate nickel makes this product an excellent candidate for applications where part flexure or deformation, such as crimping, will occur.
