Bright Nickel Plating

ASTM B689, AMS-QQ-N-290

bright nickel plated electrical components

At APP we do bright nickel plating -- it is widely used for decorative and engineering applications. Deposits are mirror bright and have a smooth finish as well as excellent corrosion resistance. It is commonly used as an intermediate deposit and it is applied in contacts and connectors. Nickel plating connectors and contacts can benefit the life cycle, performance, and quality of the electrical components. APP also proudly performs bright nickel plating for barrels to help reduce costs for electroplating.
