Nickel P-Pellets™ (CDN)

Nickel P-Pellets™ are a high purity form of nickel widely used for electroplating with titanium anode baskets. P-Pellets™ are produced by a unique carbonyl gas refining process at the Copper Cliff Nickel Refinery in Sudbury, Canada. The controlled and consistent purity of P-Pellets™ and the advantages associated with its distinctive shape make this product ideal for general purpose plating with titaniumanode baskets:

  • Carbonyl refining produces the purest form of nickel available
  • Unique shape prevents the formation of bridges and voids in the basket
  • Settles uniformly in basket, ensuring uniform current density and high quality deposits
  • Flows easily into regular and shaped baskets with standard mesh sizes
  • Ideal for use with automated basket loading devices
  • Safe to handle (no sharp edges)
  • Dissolves at 100% anode efficiency in common nickel plating solutions (containing chlorides)

Dissolution produces a small amount of metallic residue which can be contained using cloth anode bags.

P-Pellets™ are produced in compliance with the following ISO standards: ISO 9001:2008.
