VP Plating’s Bright Nickel Plating provides a brilliant, highly reflective, and lustrous finish while also providing corrosion resistance, wear ability, and some degree of leveling of surface imperfections. It is a Watt’s based electrolytic process that deposits a single layer of nickel over many metal substrates and has many decorative and engineering uses. Our nickel plating is also a magnetic coating that can give magnetic characteristics to otherwise nonmagnetic substrates.
