Q. Hello,

We have small parts as which wanted satin nickel. But these part's racking very hard and lose time and most important capacity per hour insufficient. So Is there possible satin barrel bath? If it possible, could you give me formula and operational condition parameters? If it not possible, at least, can I achieve a similar appearance near a formula?

Thanks.

Q. Hello, I had asked a question one month ago. But nobody answered yet. I read a lots of book but I couldn't find its answer. I Hope somebody can answer it.

Thanks.

A. "Satin" isn't very specific. To some this might be quite dull, and to others, just less than full bright. You might get what you want from a simple Watts formulation with no brighteners. A semi-bright bath as is used for the first layer in duplex nickel will produce, as it says, a semi bright finish. Any of the major suppliers of nickel plating processes should be able to help you, but you will need to show them just what you want to achieve.
