Nickel electrodeposited from electrolytes containing magnesium, manganese, cobalt and sulphur were heat treated at 600°C for 30 hours to find out a suitable undercoat for solar collectors operating at high temperatures ( 7 4@0°C). Optical properties were measured and microscopic observation was made for the appearance of blisters, cracks and damage. It was found that excepting Watt's nickel other solutions containing magnesium, cobalt and manganese were found suitable for operation at high temperatures.
