The MAR NICKEL PRO Ni-Fe Plus process is a new generation system formulated to replace all-nickel deposits with a high iron alloy deposit.

The MAR NICKEL PRO Ni-Fe Plus deposit produced from this process exhibits superior leveling to all-nickel deposits and is capable of plating deposits of 35% to 45% iron on a continuing basis for substantial savings to the electroplater. For further savings, Iron blanks anode material can be used in titanium baskets.

The outstanding features of the MAR NICKEL PRO Ni-Fe Plus process is:

  • Variety of anode materials which can be used
  • Superior leveling and 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

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:

Nickel Sulphate: The Ni-Fe Plus process can be operated at lower concentrations of nickel sulphate than all-nickel baths. Values as low as 10 oz/gallon will give satisfactory results, depending on plating conditions.

Nickel Chloride: It is advisable to maintain a higher nickel chloride content in the Ni-Fe Plus process. This eliminates anode polarization, and lowers operating costs.

Boric Acid: The additives used in the Ni-Fe Plus process interfere with boric acid analytical results. It is advisable to carry this material at a high concentration ¾ near saturation.
