Electroless Nickel Plating for Industrial Finishing
Technic offers state-of-the-art electroless nickel plating chemistry for industrial surface finishing applications.
The electroless plating process does not involve applying electricity directly to the metal surface; instead, it relies on the oxidation-reduction (red-ox) reaction between nickel and phosphorous allowed by the catalyst. Electroless plating, used on aluminum, steel and metal alloy surfaces (among others), is often chosen when specific physical characteristics of the deposit are required.
Technic’s selection of electroless nickel plating processes are designed to improve the characteristics of metal surfaces, such as increasing corrosion resistance, hardness and covering power, and improving appearance. Electroless nickel products include low, medium and high phosphorous solutions in order to satisfy all of our customers’ needs. Typically, high phosphorus content enhances corrosion resistance, however, at the same time it could reduce metal surface hardness.
Techniphos 615 is an electrolytic nickel/phosphorous (NiP) plating process that produces > 10 % phosphorous over a wide current density range. Unlike typical NiP processes that exhibit low phos content at high current densities, Techniphos 615 represents a truly unique formulation that outperforms anything currently available.
