COMPLEX SHAPES? PRECISE AND ASSURED WITH ELECTROLESS NICKEL.
Unlike electrolytic nickel plating, electroless nickel plating has the advantage of absolute dimensional integrity and accurate contour deposition. Whether the work piece has raised points, angles, drill holes or surface depressions, the coating occurs completely evenly, even in the case of complex structures or internal surfaces.
Depending on the type of application, the possible layer thicknesses vary between 2 and 100 µm. Due to the crack-free, amorphous deposition, an extremely high degree of corrosion resistance is achieved. With heat treatment, the hardness can be increased from 500 HV up to 950 HV, and wear resistance can be greatly improved. Especially in the field of mechanical engineering electroless nickel plating, with its advantages, offers an alternative to other coating methods.
