Extruded Aluminium (6063)that has been zincated (Twice), electroless nickel 2 microns and silver plated 6 microns. With a pre 200 and post 150 degree C bake is blistering at the alum interface.
Process to manufacturer guidelines I'm told.

I did not understand, why you are using electroless nickel as an undercoat before silver? Remove electroless nickel before silver plating, you will probably solve the problem of blistering.
