More About Bright Nickel
Nickel provides a decorative appearance because of its ability to cover imperfections in the base metal (leveling). Bright Nickel deposits also offer better wearability than softer metals such as copper or zinc whereby being used when wear resistance is needed. Since nickel is magnetic it can sometimes be utilized when magnetization is needed. Finally, since bright nickel is a low stress application, it can be utilized in the aerospace or electroforming industry where stress needs to be held to a minimum.
