"Nickel oxidation causing adhesion problems?"



2000

We are having a problem with an immersion gold flash lifting off the surface of our nickel plating during a gold wedge bonding application. An Auger depth profile showed 15-18 atomic % oxygen peak at the interface of the nickel/gold plating. How much oxide can be tolerated without causing an adhesion problem?

Catherine.

If you have a lots of wetting agent in the nickel solution you get a bad adhesion of the gold deposit. If the nickel is to much passivate you should try to activate in sulfuric acid 10 % for 1-2 minutes and neutralize it potassium solution before gold plating.
