Three paths to the perfect surface

To achieve a perfect surface, Aurolia primarily utilizes three electroplating processes. With their assistance, we can positively influence many important properties of the material. Aurolia surfaces are harder, more durable, more wear-resistant, and corrosion-resistant. Our customers specify the requirements, and we create a surface layer that precisely meets their needs, from functionality to texture and appearance.

Chemical Nickel Plating


Steel, stainless steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metals, and aluminum: Thanks to various pretreatment measures, many materials can be chemically nickel-plated. Through coating, we significantly enhance corrosion protection and achieve high wear resistance with values of up to 1000 HV. Magnetic insulation properties are also possible. Of course, we can also meet aesthetic requirements. Thus, everything from matte through glass bead blasting to high gloss is possible. By adding additional components, other optical characteristics can also be achieved within certain limits. Our electrolytes work so precisely that even tightly tolerated fits with the coatings are precisely achieved.

We offer chemical nickel in low, medium, and high phosphorus ranges, in black, PTFE, or dispersed with boron nitride. As your competent partner, we are happy to assist you with any questions regarding chemical nickel. We work closely with process developers to provide you with practical solutions and the latest developments in high-performance surface technology. We process your components according to DIN EN ISO 4527.

Hard facts

  • Chemical Nickel Process
  • Processing: Batch and rack coating
  • Functional surface for corrosion and wear protection indoors and outdoors
  • Texture and appearance dependent on pretreatment (blasted/polished)
  • Tight tolerances +/- 2 μm
  • Wide range from low to high phosphorus content, from glossy to matte, from sliding to black
  • Layers can be combined, e.g., high phosphorus layer on low to increase corrosion protection, and vice versa to increase wear protection
  • RoHS, ELV, and FDA compliant
  • High chemical resistance
  • Low friction coefficient
  • Solderable
