Electroless nickel plating factory. Worker placing products in a plating tank at a factory specialising in electroless nickel plating. This process relies on the presence of a reducing agent, such as hydrated sodium hypophosphite, which reacts with the metal ions to deposit metal, instead of the electric current used in traditional electroplating. Photographed at NiTEC, UK.
