Electroless Nickel Plating
Electroless nickel plating is an auto-catalytic plating process that yields significant advantages over traditional electrolytic nickel. The lack of current density issues provide a deposit that is extremely uniform in coverage and thickness. This inherent characteristic makes this process ideal for plating components that are complex in shape and require tight “after plating” tolerances. EN deposits provide excellent corrosion resistance, hardness and wear resistance. Electroless nickel can be applied to all common base materials and provides superior protection for light metals (i.e. aluminum alloys).
