Nickel Plated Wire Spools

Nickel Plated Wire

MWS is a leading wire supplier of nickel plated wire for the medical, electronic, aerospace and defense industries. Nickel plated wire offers great corrosion resistance due to the formation of a protective surface oxide as well as excellent high-temperature resistance.

Nickel Plated Wire Properties

Nickel Element

Nickel plating is also applied for various soldering, brazing and welding applications in which a highly pure nickel deposit is required. MWS does not use any brighteners (organic or metallic) to ensure the highest purity deposit available.

Nickel deposits on wire are often used in the spring and wire forming industry as a lubricious coating offering increased tool life. Abrasive metals such as beryllium copper and stainless steel can lead to premature tool failure without a nickel coating.
