Airplane Cloth Plated with Nickel
A process is being developed by a Newark, N. J., inventor for nickel plating cloth used in airplane construction so as to make it fireproof. The object to be plated, if cloth or wood, is first given a metallic bath and then heated to a certain point and dipped in the nickel solution. It is believed that the process may also be applied to fireproofing other combustible materials.
