The objective of this work is to study, on a copper wire, the effect of TiO2-nanoparticles on electrodeposited nickel. Both the microstructure and surface morphology (texture) of the coating were investigated. This deposit is obtained from baths of sulfated electroplating Watts. The Ni-TO2 composite coating is deposited at a temperature of 45 °C. The composite deposit is prepared by adding nanoparticles of TiO2 to the electrolyte. The characterization has been carried out by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, microhardness measurements, and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). Vickers microhardness was used to characterize the mechanical properties of the electrodeposited nickel. The results showed the effects of the TiO2 on the composition, the surface morphology, and the hardness of the deposited layer. However, there was not an effect of TiO2 nanoparticles on texture.
