Scratch and Corrosion Resistant Bike Frames

Here at electroless nickel plating headquarters Nitec, we nickel plate a wide range of components, sculptures, and other items that need to be especially resistant to corrosion.

Slightly more unusual objects that we have had the pleasure of nickel plating are bikes! Road bikes and mountain bikes alike can get very dirty, and with all their exposure to mud and water, scrapes and scratches, and even just general use, it doesn’t take long for a decent bike to begin to look scruffy.

Electroless nickel plating your steel or aluminium  bike frame is the perfect solution to the problems of corrosion and wear on a bike regularly exposed to the elements. But from only £185 you can have your bike frame nickel plated to make sure it stays immaculate looking for years.

It will be resistant to corrosion, so say goodbye to rust and scratches!

We are specialists in electroless nickel plating and this service is a great way to protect your bike. All you have to do is send your bike frame to us, disassembled so that just the handlebars and frame remain, and we will nickel plate it for you in just 5 days.

Electroless Nickel Plating for Engineering

There are many advantages of using electroless nickel plating for engineering purposes.

Even coating

Electroless nickel plating provides an even coating of nickel across the surface of the component. This is useful in engineering applications because it allows the nickel coating to be built up in order to increase the size of the item, and improve dimensional conformance.

Thickness

Electroless nickel coatings are also good for engineering purposes because the thickness of a nickel coating can easily be adjusted.

This means that no matter the specification, the thickness of the electroless nickel plating can be adjusted accordingly.

Blind holes and recesses within the metal can also be plated effectively using electroless nickel plating, as it plates wherever the nickel touches the item.

Corrosion resistance

Electroless nickel plating not only offers good cohesion and excellent performance, it is also very resistant to corrosion and wear.

Nickel plating as a barrier layer

Nickel plating can be used to plate uniformly over all surfaces, and can be used for applications where brightness is not required. As a barrier layer, nickel is plated on oil field valves, drive shafts, electrical tools and industrial machinery.
