Nickel Chloride





MAHAVIR’s Nickel Chloride is a Premium-Grade salt derived from Virgin Nickel metal. It is produced under strictest process control to ensure the best and consistent quality needed in the electrolytic or electroless plating processes and for Fungicicidal use in Tea plantations.

Due to its controlled crystal size & type, it provides the user with optimum performance. It dissolves rapidly, smoothly & with minimum dusting problems.

MAHAVIR’S Nickel Chloride is most preferred product by Electroplaters For General as well as Electoioss Plating lines and Nickel based chemical manufacturers.

MAHAVIR’S Nickel Chloride is packed in 25 kg HDPE, strong humidity, resistant bags. It is also supplied in pallets of 40 bags ( 1 Tonne) protected by cardboard.


MAHAVIR’S Nickel Chloride is a Crystallised salt-containing 6 water molecules.. Although it keeps in excellent condition during storage, it is necessary to take certain precautions to prevent a change in Physical appearance which may be caused by variations in temperature, humidity or sunlight, such as setting in bulk, deliquescence or change in colour. It should be stored in dry place and protected from strong heat and sunlight.

However in such cases where physical appearance may have changed, the chemical properties of the product remain unchanged.


Constant and strict control for quality during production is maintained by MAHAVIR’S Laboratories. Each lot is in variably analysed at all the stages. This ensures the highest quality on which MAHAVIR/S reputation is based.


Mishandling of Nickel Chloride or its solutions may cause eye or skin irritation. In case of contamination of skin, wash with plenty of soap & water, In case of eye contact rinse with abundant water for 10 to 15 minutes and consult a Doctor.
