What is Nickel Electroless plating?

Nickel Electroless Plating is a process that deposits an alloy of 90% nickel and 10% phosphorus on a wide range of metals. It provides additional wear- and corrosion resistance, lubricity, and ancillary performance characteristics compared to its electrolytic counterpart.


Difference between nickel electroless plating & nickel electroplating

Difference Electroless Nickelplating (ENP) Electroplating Nickel (EP)
Different principle ENP is the simpler plating solution, as no electric charge or catalyst is needed. It involves a natural chemical reaction, which occurs evenly on all exposed areas of the base material. EP process involves an electric current: two electrodes are dipped into a solution and connected to an electric circuit. As electricity flows through the circuit, metal atoms are deposited, resulting in a thin coating.
Different plating speed EP is much fater than NEP
Different environmental protection ENP is more environmentally friendly than EP
Different applications We could find ENP all around us, because this method applies a uniform coating to ven the most complex shapes Its applications is not widely used,such as the aerospace or defense will not use EP.

Benefits for Nickel Electroless Plating.

Provides an even coating on irregular shapes.

Can be applied to many different base materials, both conductive and non-conductive.

Can reach the hidden surfaces of complex parts.

Results in better corrosion resistance due to the coating’s consistency.

Has a customizable finish, from matte to bright.

Saves money due to less wasted nickel.

High temperature resistance: the melting point of the catalytic alloy layer is 850-890 degrees.

High surface hardness: the surface for steel and cooper could reach to HV570 much higher than before
