Matt nickel and bright nickel are two different effects of nickel plating surface treatment. The main difference between these two is the gloss and use of the surface.
1. Surface gloss:
Matte nickel: As the name suggests, the surface presents a dull or slightly glossy appearance, and the surface looks softer. Matt nickel does not reflect too much light, so it is more resistant to wear after a long time of use, and it is not easy to show fingerprints and small scratches.
2. Application field:
Matt nickel is often used in areas that require wear resistance and functionality, such as parts of some mechanical equipment and industrial supplies, because its surface is not easy to scratch, and it is not easy to stain fingerprints.
Bright nickel is more used for decorative products, such as furniture accessories, car decoration, hardware sanitary ware, etc., mainly because it provides a shiny and attractive appearance.
3. Production cost:
Matt nickel and bright nickel are produced by different processes, and the production cost of bright nickel is usually slightly higher than that of Matt nickel, because bright nickel may require additional grinding and polishing operations, as well as special additives and process controls.
In general, the choice of matte nickel or bright nickel depends on the use of the product and the desired appearance. Under normal circumstances, if you need a durable and practical appearance, you will choose matte nickel; If you need a high gloss and decorative effect, you tend to choose bright nickel. The coating with good brightness can be obtained by adding Bigely nickel plating brightener Ni-301 in production.
