Electroless Nickel

Electroless nickel plating is a chemically controlled process whereby a dense coating of nickel phosphorus alloy is deposited on to a part. The rate of deposition or coating thickness is carefully controlled resulting in uniform coating thickness over the entire part regardless of the part’s geometry or shape. We are therefore able to achieve very tight and precise tolerances on many metals including:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Copper

Benefits of an Electroless Nickel Coating
An electroless nickel coating provides superb corrosion protection and significantly increased wear resistance. It also results in increased hardness and solderability.

Electroless nickel coatings or “EN” coatings do not require electrical current because they are created by a controlled oxidation reduction process and therefore referred to as “electroless” coatings. Electroless nickel coatings are also called chemical or auto catalytic nickel coatings.
