Abstract : INTA has developed a process for the coating of self-catalytic nickel on aluminum alloys. Program objectives: Formulation of the solutions capable of yielding self-catalytic nickel deposits on different metallic substrates. This requires in its turn; and Selection of the surfaces conditioning process according to the proper characteristics of the base metal. The metallic surfaces conditioning is in any case a factor of primary importance in order to insure a successful protection. In the case of the self-catalytic nickel depositions the said surfaces conditioning reaches its highest requirements being, probably the aluminum and its alloys, the metal which presents the major problems and to which, in our work program, it has been devoted a special attention.
