Currently, electrochemical nickel coating with quasi-crystalline particles has become a widely used method in various industries. This method of producing a composite nickel coating provides improved mechanical strength, high adhesion and corrosion resistance, which makes it the preferred choice for improving the surface quality of various materials.

The invention relates to the field of electroplating and can be used to increase the wear resistance of tools, reduce friction in bearings and as protective non-wettable coatings in various industries, in particular, to prevent icing of power line wires.

The process of electrochemical production of a composite nickel coating with quasi-crystalline particles is based on the electrodeposition of nickel on the substrate surface in the presence of quasi-crystalline particles. For this coating, an electrochemical method such as electrolysis or electrolytic deposition is usually used.

The electrodeposition process takes place under the influence of direct current. In this case, nickel ions from the solution ensure the deposition of nickel on the surface of the substrate, and quasi-crystalline particles attach to the resulting nickel coating. Thus, a composite nickel coating with quasi-crystalline particles is formed, which has a peculiar microstructure and improved properties.

In addition to the electrochemical method, there are other methods for producing a composite nickel coating with quasi-crystalline particles, such as the evaporative deposition method, plasma deposition and physical spraying methods. However, the electrochemical method is the most popular and technologically effective method that is widely used in industry.

The use of a composite nickel coating with quasi-crystalline particles makes it possible to improve the surface properties of materials, providing them with additional strength, wear resistance and corrosion protection. This method is used in automotive, electronic, aerospace, medical and other industries where high reliability and durability of product surfaces are required.
