Sl.No. Synosis Points
1 This International Standard is a revised version of ISO 1456:2003: Metallic coatings — Electrodeposited coatings of nickel plus chromium and of copper plus nickel plus chromium incorporating ISO 1458:2002: Metallic coatings — Electrodeposited coatings of nickel. Decorative, electrodeposited nickel coatings, with and without copper undercoats and without chromium top-coats, are suitable for applications in which tarnishing could be prevented by avoiding rubbing or handling in service or by the use of topcoats other than chromium. They are also suitable for those applications where tarnishing is of no importance. Corrosion resistance depends on the type and thickness of the coatings.
2 Decorative, electrodeposited nickel plus chromium and copper plus nickel plus chromium coatings are applied to manufactured articles to enhance their appearance and corrosion resistance. Corrosion resistance depends on the type and thickness of the coatings. In general, multilayer nickel coatings provide better corrosion resistance than single-layer nickel coatings of equal thickness, and micro-discontinuous chromium coatings provide better protection than conventional chromium.
3 WARNING — This International Standard may not be compliant with some countries’ health and safety legislations and calls for the use of substances and/or procedures that may be injurious to health if adequate safety measures are not taken. This International Standard does not address any health hazards, safety or environmental matters and legislations associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this International Standard to establish appropriate health, safety and environmentally acceptable practices and take suitable actions to comply with any national and international regulations. Compliance with this International Standard does not in itself confer immunity from legal obligations.
