 Codeposition process of conductive particles WC with matrix metal Ni from Watts nickel plating bath was studied- The experimental results show that two-step adsorption model proposed by Guglielmi also applies to the codeposition process of conductive particle WC with matrix metal Ni to form Ni -WC composite coating. Strong adsorption step is the rate controlling step. For the Ni-WC codeposition system, it is found that B < A, K=7.0X 103 and the ratio of loose adsorption coverage to strong adsorption coverage of particles at cathode surface is smaller than that of codeposition systems with non-conductive particles.

Key words: Composite plating, Ni-WC composite coating, Conductive particle, Codeposition mechanism, Two-step adsorption model
