CHEMONIL SEMIBRIGHT process produces the first semi-bright layer of double
nickel plating. Nickel deposits from this electrolyte are ductile, sulfur-free or contain only small amounts of sulphur (less than 0.005 % S) and can be nickel plated further without any intermediate treatment in CHEMONIL Glanznickel HL 07 UD. The adhesion strength of nickel layers from CHEMONIL Glanznickel HL 07 UD on layers of CHEMONIL SEMIBRIGHT is excellent.
The columnar structure of layers deposited by CHEMONIL SEMIBRIGHT provides the empirical potential difference of at least 70 mV between semi-bright and bright nickel layer being required for a good corrosion protection.
CHEMONIL HL 07 UD
CHEMONIL HL 07 UD is a high-performance bright nickel process offering the following advantages:
- High levelling
- Lamellar structure
- Main components are analysable
- Adjustable brightness
- System control via single components possible
- High activity and thus good chrome plating ability
CHEMONIL HL 07 UD allows the reproducible setting of levelling and brightness within wide ranges by adjustment of dosage according to each requirement.
CHEMONIL HL 07 UD is especially suitable for all kinds of decorative and decorative-functional nickel plating, especially for direct nickel plating within the scope of multi layers, e. g. on copper or semi-bright nickel plated surfaces, on plating on plastics or double nickel.
CHEMONIL SATIN provides continuously matt, fine-grained nickel deposits. Even polished substrates can be nickel-plated almost non-reflecting. Deposited layers show good scratch and scuff resistance and the high surface activity provides a very good chrome-plating ability.
CHEMONIL SATIN can be used anywhere when a decorative, precious appearance is required.
