Nickel Chemical Etching – Nickel Etching

Nickel etching is a process used to produce precise and intricate designs or patterns on nickel and nickel-based alloys. This technique is employed across various industries, including electronics, aerospace, automotive, and medical devices, due to nickel’s desirable properties such as corrosion resistance, durability, and conductivity.

Nickel Etching

The history of nickel etching dates back to the early 20th century when advancements in material science and chemistry allowed for more sophisticated methods of manipulating metal surfaces.

Early techniques were rudimentary and often involved trial and error with various acids and chemicals. As technology progressed, more precise and controlled methods were developed, leading to the sophisticated techniques used today.Looking for reliable, quick-turn nickel etching services suppliers and more precision etching product manufacturers?

How To Etch Nickel

Metal Grades For Nickel Etching

Nickel etching involves removing layers of nickel from a substrate to create precise and intricate patterns. The choice of nickel grade can significantly impact the etching process and the quality of the final product. Here are some common nickel grades used for etching:


Nickel 200

Composition: Approximately 99.6% nickel.
Properties: Good thermal and electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance, and magnetic properties.
Applications: Used in electronic components, battery components, and chemical processing equipment.

Nickel 201

Composition: Similar to Nickel 200, but with a lower carbon content.
Properties: Improved resistance to embrittlement by intergranular carbides at elevated temperatures.
Applications: Suitable for applications where higher temperatures are involved.

Nickel 205

Composition: Similar to Nickel 200, with enhanced controlled grain size and mechanical properties.
Properties: Better mechanical properties and improved machinability.
Applications: Often used in electrical and electronic applications requiring high precision.

Nickel-Iron Alloys

Composition: Varying percentages of nickel and iron.
Properties: Low thermal expansion (Invar 36) or specific thermal expansion properties matched to other materials (Alloy 42).
Applications: Used in applications requiring precise dimensional stability over temperature changes, such as in electronic devices and precision instruments.

Nickel-Copper Alloys

Composition: Approximately 63% nickel, 28-34% copper, with small amounts of iron and manganese.
Properties: Excellent corrosion resistance, high strength, and good weldability.
Applications: Suitable for marine applications, chemical and hydrocarbon processing equipment.

Nickel-Chromium Alloys

Composition: Varying percentages of nickel and chromium.
Properties: High resistance to oxidation and corrosion, high melting point, and good mechanical properties.
Applications: Commonly used in heating elements and high-temperature applications.

Components That Are Produced By Etching Nickel

The popularity of Nickel makes it a desirable metal for use in fabrication because it is easy to manufacture and has favorable properties for many industrial products.With the photo etching process, the metal is etched evenly without any structural deformations from the hard tooling used in stamping and punching.Since there isn’t a heat point of contact like laser cutting, the parts’ metal properties remain unchanged and free from thermal deformations.Get inspired by our custom etching part projects and contact us to Get Instant Quote for rapid prototype or Nickel etching parts start from 1pcs.

The Surface Treatment Of Metal Etching Parts

Do you want your etching parts to be more corrosion-resistant or get a specific look? Metal finishing service is a essential choice to achieve your design perfectly. BE-CU – is an accomplished finished parts manufacturer, our workers and craftsman are capable to provide precision metal etching services and a wide range of finishing services including aluminum anodizing, painting, passivation, electroplating, powder coating, polishing, black oxide, conversion coating, abrasive blasting, etc. We offers several common surface finishes to help improve functionality and aesthetics.

  •  Anodizing (Anodized)
  • Passivation
  •  Plating (Electroplating)
  •  Painting
  • Black Oxide (Hot Blackening)
  •  Polishing
  • Powder Coating
  • Heat Treatment
  • Satin Finish
  • Abrasive blasting (Sandblasting)
  • Conversion coating
  • Tungsten carbide coating

After browsing a list of metal finishing services, select a process based on essential considerations, like production time, cost-effectiveness, part tolerance, durability and applications. High-tolerance metal etching parts are not recommended to apply secondary metal surface finish, because the treatment may change the sizes of the finished part through removing or adding a small amount of materials.
