Application solutions

Lead in nickel baths

Lead is added to nickel baths chemically as a stabilizer. In addition, it has a large effect on nickel deposition itself. The quantity of lead must be maintained in the low mg/L range, in order to be able to guarantee uniform deposition of nickel.

Using voltammetry, it is possible to monitor limits reliably, quickly and easily.
