Electroless nickel plating holds several distinct advantages over electrolytic nickel plating.
Why should you consider Electroless nickel plating for your metal finishing needs?
- Simply put, Electroless nickel is a plating process that does not require an electrical charge to create a bond between the metals. The plating solution contains chemical features that allow it to bond to the base metal part.
- Electroless nickel is a fluid alloy of nickel and phosphorous.
- The presence of phosphorous in the nickel deposit results in a higher level of corrosion resistance, less magnetic properties, as well as reduced friction.
What does this plating process mean for your business?
- Electroless nickel is able to uniformly coat deep recesses and holes in the product being plated.
- The plating solution will evenly and efficiently plate any part of the metal it touches.
- This process can be performed using rack or barrel plating, allowing for a wide variety of sizes and shapes to be plated.
- This plating process will result in increased surface hardness and wearability of the product.
- Electroless nickel plating will supply an abrasion resistant product.
- This plating process will offer superior corrosion resistance.
- This plating process is well suited for products used in the food and dairy industry as well as in many other applications.
