Nickel PlatingNickel plating of components

Baker Engineering offer a range of nickel plating options including:

  • Bright Nickel plating
  • Satylite Nickel plating
  • Electroless Nickel plating

The batch handling plant has a jig capacity of 1800mm x 750mm x 500mm wide. (Bright Nickel plating &
Satylite Nickel only)



At Baker Engineering we are able to offer nickel plate the following materials:

  • Brass
  • Monel
  • Steel
  • Stainless Steel


Bright Nickel plating

A thin layer of nickel deposited by electroplating.


  • Mirror like deposit
  • Very smooth and hard deposit – durable and strong
  • Most popular Nickel finish


Appearance/Finishes: Bright


Thickness: Between 0.013 – 0.025mm


Applications / Industries

  • Automotive
  • Decorative/ Cosmetic
  • Electrical/Electronics
  • Medical


Satylite Nickel

A dull nickel deposit achieved by the addition of specially formulated solids suspended in the nickel plating solution.


  • Unique lustrous finish


Appearance/Finishes: Lustrous


Thickness: 6 microns – 20 microns


Applications / Industries

Electroless Nickel (EN) Plating

An auto-catalytic chemical process used to deposit a layer of nickel-boron or nickel-phosphorus alloy.


  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Smooth and even coating, excellent for deep recesses and surface variations
  • Controlled plating thickness
  • If heat treated can approach the hardness of chrome (950 VPN, cf 480-600 VPN non-heat treated)
  • Non magnetic
  • Good solderability
  • Good oil wettability
  • Excellent corrosion resistance


Appearance/Finishes: Semi-bright


Thickness: As required


Applications / Industries

  • Engineering where even coverage of component is paramount
