"Heat treating of Nickel electroforms"



2005

I am plating from a Ni sulfamate solution (~84g/L Ni), pH 4 buffered with boric acid, adjusted with sulfamic acid, on to a cylindrical drum. Current density ranges from 10-60ASF, thickness ~200 microns.

We peel the Ni coating off, clamp it down flat and heat treat in air at ~300C for 6hrs then furnace cool to room temp. The only reason for the heat treatment is to flatten the part.

What effect does heat treating have on the Ni part, specifically related to hardness/grain size? Is there a curve similar to the TTT curves for steel that would illustrate what is happening?

Thanks,

Your type of work seems highly technical and your questions very hard to answer briefly, so it would better for you to get a copy of the book "Properties of Electrodeposited Metals and Alloys" [affil. link to book on Amazon], W. Safranek. Available through this site.
