Question:

We want to plate zincated aluminum with electroless nickel. Can this be done without using a copper strike bath? M. P.

Answer:

Yes, you can apply electroless nickel directly to zincated aluminum. If you want the best possible adhesion, the parts should be baked at a low temperature after plating.
