Co-operative Plating Co. is proud to announce another plating option to its vast array of plating services, Black Pearl Nickel Plating. By taking an existing line and reconfiguring it with an additional rectifier, Co-operative Plating was able to begin the refined process of enhancing their rack and barrel nickel plating capabilities.

This plating process is a further enhancement over nickel plating. The electrolytic approach makes the nickel more corrosion resistant and provides the finish color many manufacturers are seeking, which is dark gray to black in color.  Equally important is the fact that Black Pearl Nickel is RoHS compliant.

The Black Pearl Nickel flash plating requires nickel under-plating that can be applied over any substrate.  In addition to its attractive appearance, Black Pearl Nickel is conductive and can be soldered or brazed.
