Nickel plating on pipe chipping off...

Recommended Posts

Due to a recent big dent the anti-rust plating is peeling off, anyone know what I can put on it for a fix that will withstand the heat? Oh for a 2 stroke pipe btw.

Nickel electroplate is an extremely stressed deposit unless the plating solution is properly maintained. Heat won't really be a problem but the stressed deposit will easily crack &/or peel if the proper cleaning/activation & plating processes are not controlled.

Once it peels....the only way to fix the deposit is strip it off & start over. Expensive..you'll probably be better off to purchase a new pipe. :moon:
