Nickel striked or struck?

Q. Which is correct?

A. Hi Josh. This is a question of English grammar that would apply to anything, not just a description of a thin layer of nickel, but I am reading that "striked" is non-standard. So "struck" it is!

... unless we want to try "stricken", which sounds grammatically correct, but the connotation isn't ideal, especially since so many people have been stricken with nickel allergies.
"We made sure your parts were stricken with nickel" :-)
