Nickel based polymer coating



(-----) 2004

I am interested in more information on your nickel based polymer coating. I am researching conductive polymers for a graduate course I am taking.

By "nickel based polymer coatings" I presume you mean polymers that have been metallised with nickel. This technology is called "electroless plating" or "chemical plating". It should not be confused with "electroplating" or "electrochemical plating". As I understand conducting polymers, there are basically two types: inherently conducting polymers (ICP) such as PEDOT, polyacetylene and polyaniline. The other type is a polymer that is filled with an electrical conductor such as silver or copper flakes, graphite, carbon fibres, etc. The two materials are totally different and have different uses and capabilities. Polymers that are coated in metals again have totally different properties to these two. I think you need to be more precise in what you are trying to find.
