Product information Betzmann Galvanik - nickel electrolyte - commercial - business
Solution for galvanic nickel plating of objects. With this solution objects can be nickel plated very easily.
With this solution shiny nickel layers (mirror finish) can be deposited quickly.
Suitable for pin electroplating and bath electroplating.
Due to the very high nickel concentration of 60g/l, this has a high deposition rate.
This nickel electrolyte may only be sold to commercial customers and under submission of an end-use declaration. Without submission of a business registration and end-use declaration no delivery will be made!

Nickel plating is one of the most important processes in the industry.
Galvanic nickel plating enables durable and wear-resistant coating of metallic or conductive surfaces. Furthermore, nickel coatings are convincing in that they are resistant to corrosion and have good solderability.
With our Betzmann Electroplating - Nickel Electrolyte you can produce electroplated nickel coatings yourself.
Depending on the material of the workpiece as well as the detailed nickel plating procedure, you will achieve the following results:
reliable corrosion protection by a layer combination such as copper-nickel
chemically resistant protective coating against diluted acids, alkalis as well as air and water
diffusion protection for subsequent electroplating
decorative protective coating with a high-gloss surface, which also serves as wear protection.
As an electroplating nickel electrolyte, our product is suitable for bath electroplating as well as for pin electroplating (pad electroplating). During nickel plating, the magnetic properties of the workpiece are retained and it exhibits a high-gloss silver-like color with a subtle yellow tint. Just as convincing as the end result is the high deposition rate exhibited by the nickel electrolyte.
If you are nickel-plating a complexly designed workpiece with curves and inner surfaces, we recommend the uncomplicated electroless nickel plating process.
Electroless nickel - decorative or protective coating
If a simply shaped workpiece or component is to be provided with a protective layer, we recommend the combination of copper and nickel. In this way, you immediately achieve reliable corrosion protection, which you would otherwise only achieve with pure nickel plating with a layer thickness of 25 to 50 µm. Only at these thicknesses does the coating have the required freedom from pores, since nickel electrolytes always deposit with fine pores.
However, electroplated nickel not only protects against corrosion. The coating, which is uncomplicated to apply, is highly resistant to dilute acids and alkalis and serves as wear protection.
If several electroplating steps with layers of different metals are planned, an electroplated nickel electrolyte can be used as a barrier layer. In this way, you prevent diffusion or color mixing of different layers. In all processes, it is irrelevant whether you use our nickel electrolyte for bath electroplating or pin electroplating (pad electroplating).
For decorative plating, the combination of bright nickel and chrome is ideal for reliably achieving flat surfaces, although pure bright nickel plating may be sufficient depending on the application.
Application notes for our nickel electrolyte (bright nickel)
The high-performance nickel electrolyte for self-nickel plating is preferably processed at room temperature in the range of 15 to 30 °C. It is suitable for all common metals. It is suitable for all common metals, semi-precious and precious metals with the exception of aluminum, chromium and titanium.
If you plan to nickel plate stainless steel yourself, please be sure to use a nickel strike, X-gold or gold flash for pretreatment to increase adhesion!
Before galvanic nickel plating, clean the workpiece particularly thoroughly. Remove rust completely and degrease the component, e.g. with alcohol. Be sure to work with clean disposable gloves to avoid transferring skin grease to the workpiece.
Please observe the following recommendations, depending on the electroplating method used:
Parameters (these can possibly deviate, please test):
Bath electroplating: 2-6,5V (approx. 4V recommended at 10cm distance)
pin plating: 3-6V (approx. 4.5V recommended)
Current density: 0.5-4A/dm² (up to 7A/dm² with bath movement)
working temperature: 15-60°C
pH: approx. 3.5-4.5 (correct with 10% sulfuric acid if necessary)
deposition rate: approx.1.3µm/min at 3A/dm²
Marking of the mixture:
Nickel electrolyte glossy
(contains nickel(II) sulfate, nickel(II) chloride, nickel(II) acetate, boric acid)
Signal word: Caution
H317: May cause allergic skin reactions.
P102: Keep out of the reach of children.
P260: Do not breathe aerosol.
P280: Wear protective gloves / eye protection.
P302 + P352: IF ON SKIN: Wash with plenty of water.

EUH208: Contains nickel(II) sulfate, nickel(II) chloride, nickel(II) acetate, nickel(II) sulfamate . May cause allergic reactions.
For processing we recommend our nickel electrode or platinum electrode.
As an alternative to nickel, we recommend palladium or white bronze (mixture of white bronze mixer and alkaline copper).
