Watts Nickel Bath Info
We have 3 drums of surplus nickel strike solution (we discontinued the process). I need to know the makeup of a typical Watts-type nickel plating solution for profiling for disposal. Or if somebody wants the solution...it uses Rolite nickel salts and you can have it and pay only the freight.Rick A

There may also be some organic additives in small quantities, like wetters, brighteners, etc.

What would be the chemical equation for nickel electroplating with nickel watts bath?Shanmuga Nathan

The simplest answer is Ni++ + 2e- --> Ni0, Shanmuga. But I don't fully understand your question -- are you sure that you do? The word 'equation', like other words, means little without context.
One of the most fascinating things that I've read recently is "The Science of Leonardo" by Fritjof Capra =>
Davinci, who was probably the greatest genius of all time, believed that the best "equation" for a horse was his pencil drawing of a horse. It took me a while to "get it", even when carefully led to it by Capra, but an equation is a simplification for the purpose of shorthand and to allow us to get our mind around an idea so that we can move to a higher level of abstraction without losing much. Hopefully the 'equation' for nickel plating which I offered you will do that. Good luck!

Could you suggest a best Nickel, manganese, cobalt plating bath/electrolyte composition over copper substrate. Also, its preparation method like removing of impurities....
