It is a deposition of a nickel layer, which is electrolytically formed. This layer protects the piece against corrosion or wear. It is also used as a pre-coat in gold, silver and tin plating processes.
Our electrolytic nickel process complies with industry regulations AMS-QQ-N-290 and MIL-STD-868. To check our certifications by client, click here.
Gold is a very good conductor of electricity, which is why gold coatings are often used as corrosion protection for veins in printed circuits, for electrical contacts in secure connectors, and for internal connections in integrated circuits. It is a highly requested coating in telecommunications, sensor and electronics industries.
We have two electrolytic gold coatings that meet the specification:
- Gold-cobalt alloy according to Type 1 MIL-DTL-45204
- Pure gold alloy according to MIL Type 3
