What is Electroless Nickel Plating?
Electroless Nickel Plating (EN) is a coating without the use of an external source of electricity. This process causes deposits onto catalytic and non-catalytic substrates. The nickel alloy deposits using a reducing agent (typically sodium hypophosphite) to convert nickel ions to nickel metal. The deposits can be either bright, dull or blackened depending on the customer’s needs. Deposits can also be corrosion or wear resistant depending on a NIP composition. The reaction is continuous as long as parts are immersed. Therefore any thickness can be achieved.
Why use Electroless Nickel?
• Uniform Thickness
• Corrosion Resistant
• High level of Hardness & Wear Resistance
• Bright Deposit for Cosmetic Applications
• Natural Lubricity
• Magnetic properties
• Solderable Coating
• Coats non-Conductors
• Can replace hard Chrome & Stainless Steel applications
Applications for Electroless Nickel include:
• Computer Electronics
• Oil & gas
• Power Transmission
• Pulp & Paper
• Waste Water Treatment
