Electroless Nickel

Electroless Nickel

Electroless Nickel plating does not require the use of anodes or a direct current, but instead uses an autocatalytic bath which deposits the nickel ions to the substrate. EN plating provides an attractive yet functional finish offering excellent corrosion and wear resistance. Heat treatment of plated parts can increase the coating hardness or improve adhesion on non-ferrous substrates. One of the biggest advantages of electroless nickel compared to electrolytic nickel is a uniform deposit on even the most complex parts.

Available deposits include:

■ Low (2-4%) phosphorous for high plated hardness and improved wear resistance.
■ Mid (5-9%) phosphorous for general-purpose applications or where an extremely bright finish is required.
■ High (10-12%) phosphorous for corrosion resistance.

Substrates Available:

Electroless nickel can be applied to a variety of substrates. CTI specializes in plating on aluminum, steel, copper, brass, and stainless steel.
