DIY nickel plating solutions
« on: July 13, 2020, 11:23:22 PM »
I am experimenting with nickel salts and plating solutions using easy to obtain acids.

I can’t seem to figure out what my solution of nickel and malic acid is producing.

Electroplating needs very long experimentation before you get decent results, especially for the adhesion of the deposited layer on the base materials, also for the smoothness of the deposited layer. It's a good start to stick to working recipes.
