MAR NICKEL PRO IA
The MAR NICKEL PRO IA process is a new generation system formulated to be used with “Insoluble Anodes”
The MAR NICKEL PRO IA deposit produced from this process exhibits superior nickel deposits and is capable of plating deposits of 5% iron on a continuing basis. The use of proprietary additives allows the co-deposition of iron with nickel. This eliminates the treatment of the nickel plating solution for dissolved iron.
The MAR NICKEL PRO IA system utilizes a unique liquid nickel replenishing solution to maintain the nickel content in an insoluble anode environment. The process does not use Boric Acid as a pH buffer or Nickel Chloride. Alternative proprietary additives are used to help maintain a buffered system; however, pH will have to be adjusted on a continuous basis using IA pH Adjustor.
The outstanding features of the MAR NICKEL PRO IA process is:
- Variety of insoluble anode materials can be used
- Superior brightness
- Excellent Chromability
- Ductility equal to or superior to all-nickel deposits
- Corrosion resistance equivalent to that obtained with all-nickel deposits
- Excellent stabilizer system
FUNCTIONS OF CONSTITUENTS
Generally, the major bath constituents perform the same functions as they do in nickel plating. However, there are a few important differences which are listed below:
IA 310-M Additive:
- The 310-M consists of the primary source of nickel, pH Buffer, IA 310-C and IA Iron Complexor components.
IA 310-C Additive:
- The 310-C controls stress and ductility of the deposit, as well as grain refinement. It is consumed essentially by electrolysis.
IA Iron Complexor:
- This material acts to keep the iron content solubilized. If the concentration drops below recommended levels, iron will precipitate from the solution.
IA pH Adjustor:
- The pH Adjustor adjusts the solution pH upward due to the generation of hydrogen using insoluble anodes.
Wetting Agent 100 WA:

- The wetting agent lowers the surface tension to prevent gas pitting. The concentration should be adjusted to reach a surface tension of 35 - 45 dynes per centimeter. It has low foaming characteristics for use with air agitation and is removed by activated carbon.
