Corrosion Resistance of Reverse Pulsed Electrodeposition Nano-Nickel Coating
With the purpose of decorative bright nickel plating process, nano-nickel and ordinary bright nickel coatings were prepared by applying the electro-deposition method with DC and PRC respectively. The grain sizes, organizational structures and surface morphologies of samples were characterizated by X-ray diffraction(XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis. The corrosion resistance of the samples were determined by immersion corrosion test, salt spray corrosion test and electrochemical methods. The results showed that the corrosion resistance of reverse pulsed electrodeposition nano-nickel coating is superior to the DC electrodeposition nickel coating.
