"White Nickel Plating"


We are a job shop in Puerto Rico, and have had some inquiries from several prospective clients about "white nickel" plating. Someone suggested this might be some sort of alloy plating, but we have not been able to get any information on this finish. Can you help?

White nickel is Tin/Cu/Zn and there are a few commercial processes out there.

The "white nickel" is generally used as an undercoat in the jewelry business as a replacement for nickel. Check with some of the precious metals process suppliers e.g. Technic I believe you will find they have proprietary processes.
