Custom Metal Plating

Nickel Plating Fasteners for Aerospace

nickel-plating-toolsEighteen thousand pieces of these threaded fasteners were nickel plated to SAE standards for one of our large aerospace customers in California. Made from 4037 alloy steel, the fasteners were cleaned with double alkaline and acid solutions prior to the electrodepositing of nickel coatings. The normal, 3-hour post bake operation to improve adhesion was completed by us within an hour. Caution was exercised at all stages to ensure that threads did not get damaged during the plating process. Customer-provided gauges were included in the plated fasteners, which were supplied to the customer within 14 days of receipt of order.
