Electroless Nickel Capabilities

Electroless nickel is hard, uniform, and corrosion resistant. As deposited, the hardness is
about 45-50 Rc. The electroless nickel can be baked to a hardness of approximately 60 Rc.
The deposit has excellent wear resistance and often allows its use as a replacement of
high alloy materials and hard chrome.

EN requires no electrical current and the result is a very uniform coating. Blind holes, threads,
channel recesses or internal areas receive the same amount of plating as sharp corners,
edges or flat surfaces.

Why Electroless Nickel (EN)?

  • Hard deposits, approximately 45 to 50 RC
  • Can be heat-treated to hardness of 60-65 RC
  • Excellent abrasion and wear resistance
  • Reduced frictional characteristics
  • Superior corrosion resistance
  • Uniform thickness - no buildup on corner or edges.
  • Excellent control of coating thickness
  • EN is often used to improve reliability, extend equipment life,
    and reduce cost
