"Titanium plating with Ni bath"2005
I want to know if it is possible to mix any Titanium based soln with a Nickel bath solution for Electroplating..

Hello Sirs / Ma'ams,
I was just wondering if there is a possibility of codepositing thru electroplating Titanium with Nickel sulfamate?... if so, can you recommend any Titanium soln that will go with Nickel sulfamate bath?...
Any help is greatly appreciated...

If I would know to plate titanium out of a water based solution (or any other kind of solution), I wouldn't tell anyone before wouldn't have a patent on it ;-)Marcus Hahn

It wasn't clear to me whether Philip wants to co-deposit some sort of titanium particles in a nickel matrix (which should be doable since teflon, diamond, chromium carbide, and all sorts of composites are plated that way), or he wants a titanium slurry for a porous plate like Ti-Cad (his 2nd request seems to indicate otherwise), or whether he wants an alloy plating (and I don't know enough metallurgy to know if such a nickel-titanium alloy is possible). But as a general rule, it is possible to electroplate SOME alloys that include active metals even though that active metal cannot be electroplated by itself. A slow and careful review of a few years' issues of Metal Finishing magazine's "Developments in Alloy Plating" should help.
