Uyemura Nickstar is an advanced black nickel technology that deposits a thin, and highly uniform over-coat of black nickel-zinc alloy, preserving the substrate’s brightness while producing an exceptionally rich black nickel finish.
Nickstar is a lustrous, and highly versatile plated black nickel. A deposit thickness up to 2 microns can be achieved with rack or barrel applications. If a thicker deposit – or very high corrosion performance – is desired, a heavy nickel undercoat can be used. Greater hardness can be achieved easily with an optional salt additive. Color density, from darkest black to softer hues, can be modified easily using a hull cell. A distinctively elegant appearance can be produced when Nickstar black nickel is dual-toned with UIC satin nickel.
Nickstar black nickel is well-suited for automotive interiors and upscale sporting goods, where it diminishes glare and improves durability. It is also ideal for hardware, plumbing, architectural and other decorative uses.
