"Nickel Chrome Plating Corrosion Resistance"



2005

We are unable to overcome the corrosion resistance time of 72 hrs. in salt spray testing as followed by the standard ASTM B117 [affil. link to spec at Techstreet] duly after Nickel-Chrome plated automotive parts . We expect some comments on this issue how to make the plating flow of processes so that it could achieve at least 72 hrs. of salt spray test.

We expect more information to try to answer your questions. Without that, you quite simply are not maintaining ALL of your process parameters within normal limits, OR it would pass.

Is it possible to give us some more information about your process?

Hi with all respect for Mr. Watt write to you I will recommend you to look over all pretreatment steps and also all steps after nickel plating. I think you have iron in your nickel solution and bad rinse after that regarding pH and more.

Hi Anders,
Second thoughts, In many companies where plating is not the primary business, management knows very little of what goes on at the operator level, as in the actual maintenance of solutions and exact following of the process procedure. My current guess, since that is what we are doing, is they do not have enough nickel or chrome on the part. They did not tell us how much there was and how they measured it.

You have good point there.

The ASTM standard that you quote specifically states that Neutral Salt Spray should not be used on Decorative Nickel/Chrome plating to evaluate corrosion resistance .

Dear Mr. Arup,
We are also in automobile line, First of all you have to check the following things,
1) Type of component
2) Material used for substrate
3) Thickness which you are giving for Nickel
4) Impurities level of bath
5) Sulphur level in you bath(i.e.Semi bright.bright)
6) RA value of component after buffing.

Dear Mr Arup De,

With the kind of BAD surface on your tongues, you need to vibro finish at-least for 24 hours before you send them out for plating. After that Tri-Nickel Chrome will see you through.

Hello Mr. Arup de

Surely by this time you must have tried out a lot of things!
as our friends have expressed in the chat box, surely you need to tell us:

1. are you plating Duplex nickel or Triplex nickel

2. what is the substrate you are using - ABS or metal ( crca)

3. what thickness of nickel you are depositing?

4. have you got - STEP test equipment - this measures the potential between the substrate and the nickel layers.

Good luck!
Do respond if you need more specific trouble shooting..
