We generally use nickel for electroplating a barrier layer onto copper before applying gold. This nickel barrier prevents the diffusion of the copper atoms into the gold which over time would discolour the gold plating. Nickel is also used to provide the bright decorative barrier layer prior to chrome plating being applied on bathroom taps, car and motorcycle parts. We also use nickel plating as a final decorative finish on ornamental knifes and swords.
