Plating on TiAl 4V Alloy


We are attempting to plate Nickel (either electroless or electrolytic) on to Ti 6Al 4V alloy but adhesion is poor.

Advice on precleaning/activation or literature sources on this issue would be appreciated.

Hi Chris.

I have one new method to get a very good adhesion between nickel and Titanium. This pretreatment method has given us an adhesion who was better than what literature said. I have developed one method for plating on titanium and next step is to get a number of how good adhesion we have. I know one book by Lowenheim [4th edition available from this link at Amazon] where he described plating on Titanium.

Best regards,
