MSDS And WATTS Nickel Bath
Q. Where can I find a MSDS for a watts nickel plating bath? C. J.
A. If you are using a pre-packaged Watts nickel plating bath, your chemical vendor can supply you with the required MSDS. If you are formulating your own plating bath then you should be able to obtain a MSDS for each of the components. Typically, a Watts plating bath contains:
- Boric acid
- Nickel sulfate
- Nickel chloride
Other components are present if you are using a bright nickel bath. Typically, these additives are proprietary and your chemical vendor can supply the appropriate MSDS.
I also did a quick Google search using the terms “MSDS” and Watts “nickel bath” and come up with a number of links.
Our expert, Art Kushner, says yes, you can color stainless steel, but it is not a process that is typically performed in a plating shop. Read more about his answer.
