Pearl Nickel Plating Process
I'm looking for some kind of Satin (Pearl) Nickel Plating which could last for 20 hours without treatment.
I heard that LPW (Germany) can offer this process and I need more information.
Does anybody know about this ? Thanks for the help.Ricks C. Lambert
Uyemura International sells a pearl bright nickel process, it's relatively expensive, but it has a great visual effect.
You can find their address in a PF magazine.

I have tried making up a Watts Nickel Bath without using brighteners. Make sure you carbon treat the bath thoroughly before starting. We experimented with Sulfamate Nickel but the coating is to soft. The Watts Dull Nickel coating is not as hard as the bright nickel, but is substantially harder than sulfamate. Also, to increase salt spray, I have been successful plating with the watts bath over a flash of electroless nickel, although this may be cost prohibitive.I hope this can be of some assistance.
