    Superior quality

    NICOR® is created by electroplating cold-rolled steel with nickel and diffusion annealing. The heat treatment ensures an inseparable bond between the homogeneous nickel layer and the steel substrate. This delivers benefits in further processing. It also means you can rely on NICOR® for semi-finished end-products of superior quality.

    Reliable performance

    Tata Steel Plating has proven expertise in the production of nickel-plated diffusion annealed steel and other electro plated steel products. The cold-rolled steel sheet that forms the basis of NICOR® is produced from top quality hot-rolled strip. Rigorous control of our cold rolling, electroplating and diffusion annealing processes means that NICOR® offers:

    • excellent corrosion resistance
    • temperature resistance to over 200°C
    • tight tolerances and optimal consistency of layer thickness
    • improved corrosion resistance
    • extra deep drawing capability
    • good scratch and abrasion resistance
    • very good further processing characteristics (weldable, brazeable)
    • excellent resistance against aggressive fuels such as bio diesel

    Main benefits of NICOR® include:

    • improved end-product functionality
    • end-products of consistent and reliable quality
    • trouble-free, repeatable processing
    • scope to optimise processes
    • minimised yield loss
