are our speciality


für markellosen Hochglanz

As a decorative process, bright nickel must meet the highest requirements. RASCHIG brighteners like RALU®PLATE POPS-liquid and RALU®PLATE HBOPS-Na stand for immaculate mirror finish. Thanks to these special brightener additives, we can optimally adjust the gloss level of the nickel plating in the electrolytes. We have been making sanitation fittings and automotive elements shine for decades with RASCHIG brighteners.

for shining materials

With the RASCHIG RALU®PLATE PPS and RALU®PLATE PPS-OH levellers, we have been assuring shining materials that not only look good but are also extremely durable for decades. Because nickel demonstrates a relatively high degree of hardness and wear resistance and offers protection against corrosion, it is robust when it comes to diluted acids and caustic solutions. These properties are optimally demonstrated in our bright nickel layers, which makes them ideally suited for mechanical and corrosion-stressed components, at the same time fulfilling the strictest decorative requirements. For a perfect result without irregularities.

for gentle removal of nickel

If the surface has lost its initial brightness, we recommend our NIPLEX® chemical stripper for the gentle removal of nickel. It functions with a simple, dead dipping process, in which nickel from all kinds of metal is insulated entirely free of corrosion. In this way, we prevent an attack on the base metal with proper handling, as NIPLEX® contains absolutely no cyanide or strong bases and acids. Thanks to its special stability, NIPLEX® remains ready to use even over longer periods of time at up to 80 °C.
