Structural investigations performed by the methods of X-ray diffractometry and scanning electron microscopy of electrodeposited iron-based coatings revealed common and specific features and regularities of influence of nickel and chromium on their structure formation. Significant changes in surface morphology, crystallographic texture and microhardness of the electrodeposited coatings caused by the insertion of nickel and chromium in the sulfate iron-plating electrolyte were found and compared.
