How to make nickel Sulfamate metal powder

May 21, 2010

Hello, We are into producing different metal powders including Nickel, Cobalt, Copper and Iron. One of our client has a requirement of Nickel sulfamate. Can anyone help me understand the broad process to produce this material. It would help me explore if its worth experimenting.
Appreciate all the help.

Hi, George. Nickel sulfamate is not a metal powder or indeed a metal -- it is a salt of a metal, like sodium chloride or copper sulphate. In the electroplating field, some of the physical characteristics of the metal deposit will depend upon the deposition parameters (voltage, temperature, concentration, etc.). One of these deposition parameters is which nickel salt was used; nickel sulfamate offers some advantages over other nickel salts.

Our site is about metal finishing rather than manufacturing processes for raw chemicals, and I don't know any of the fine details; but in general terms, nickel sulfamate would be produced by dissolving nickel metal into sulfamic acid. Good luck.

Thanks Ted.
Appreciate the help. I knew it has nothing to do with metal powder as such. Just that our client asked if we would develop this product for them and I was doing initial research to see if we can do it with our existing infrastructure. While doing research I came across this site and found some insightful information hence though I will take a chance to ask around here about the process.
Anywho, will keep visiting the site and learn new things.
