Use Potassium Permangante to Remove Contaminents in Bright Nickel Plating Solution

Unwanted organic contamination is a common problem when using bright nickel plating solutions. To remove contaminants both from outside sources and from brightner breakdown Oxidation treatments are routinely needed. Using potassium permanganate to oxidize and breakdown the organic contaminants so they can be more easily removed on a carbon pack-on filter is a common solution. Permanganate is a popular choice because it is a much stronger oxidizing agent than hydrogen peroxide and will will remove the more stubborn organic materials. Unfortunately overuse of the permanganate will cause … [Read more...]
