Darken nickel marked with a laser



2004

I am about to begin laser marking chrome plated items. The procedure will burn through the chrome and actually mark the nickel. I need something that will make the nickel mark as dark as possible. Can you help?

Thanks,

Black nickel might work. It tends to be a very dark grey rather than a true black. It also is a very picky bath to run.

Black colour for nickel:

1 lit water
0,5 gm potassium thiocyanate(KCNS)
5 ccm H2SO4
25 ccm hydrogen peroxide(30%)
temp.15 °C,cca. 15 min.

Use only fresh solution!Good luck!
