Nickel is a hard plating, used
instead of silver in high temperature and oxidizing environments. Nickel is
a bright, slichtly yellow deposit. It is magnetic and highly passive.
Melting Temperature: 1455°C.
Depending on the application, maximum advised using temperature is 1200°C.
Industry Standard ASTM B 689.
Nickel plating from solutions not containing hardeners, brighteners or
stress control additives.
Thickness 10 µ to 250 µ.
Basic Metal Pre-plating preparation.
Parts to be plated are subject to such cleaning , pickling and plating
procedures as are necessary to obtain the desired results.
All nickel plating is proceeded by a nickel strike.
Maximum rectangular size 450 X
550, max width 180.
Maximum diameter 450 mm.
In order to avoid metal-ion contamination of the plating solutions HTMS can
only accept steel, stainless steel and all Ni Alloys.
Plating on Titanium is also a specialism of HTMS.
Resilient metal seals from High
Tech Metal Seals NV are used in the most extreme environmental conditions.
Spring Energised Metal C Rings are used under extreme conditions where
temperature can range from cryogenic up to extreme high temperatures, such
To serve the harsh conditions in todays Oil and Gas exploration, High Tech
Metal Seals NV designs and manufactures resilient metals seals which comply
and exceed the ISO 15848 leakage requirements for valves intended for
application with volatile air pollutants and hazardous fluids. High Tech
Metals Seals are manufactured from high alloy materials so that the finished
product complies with NACE MR0175 requirements. Silver plated Metal O rings
or Metal C Rings, because of ductile layer are successfully used in high
vacuum applications. Silver plated or PTFE coated spring energised C Rings
and Metal C Rings comply and exceed the ISO 15848 leakage requirements, from
cryogenic temperatures up to extreme high temperatures and pressures. In
nuclear applications, particle research, and other radiation application,
typically high load resilient metal seals, such as spring energized metal C
Rings or Metal O Rings, with a ductile layer of silver are successfully
used. High Tech Metal Seals NV, seals for extreme environmental conditions
are particularly suited for high pressure. The system pressure assist in
maintaining intimate contact with the mating flanges.
