Paper Abstract

Aluminum mirrors polishing can not be effected if the surface is not properly coated. Electroless nickel coatings are still the best answer to this demand but they have several backdraws that become prohibitive for producing very large mirrors. These critical points have been investigated by the author and solved by means of chemical and physical techniques.
