Nickel Plated Fasteners
Nickel Plated Fasteners have a base of steel electroplated with a layer of nickel to provide corrosion and wear resistance while also providing a decorative finish. Nickel plating adds several benefits including increased toughness and strength to a fastener. Nickel fasteners are ductile and are common in high heat, high stress applications. They are very resistant to corrosive environments making them suitable for marine environments. Due to its ability to be used in high heat applications, plumbers often use this metal in valves and other plumbing components.
