We are a reputed organization engaged in offering Electroless Nickel Coating Services to our clients. Also known as Autocatalytic nickel plating, it is used in various industry applications to coat Electroless Nickel Coating instead of hard chromium.
It is a very effective procedure as it acts a barrier for the components made of chromium and provides corrosion and wear resistance to it. Some applications need the components to be harder and do not care even if the corrosion resistance property of the metal is reduced, in such case Electroless Nickel can be subjected to heat at low temperatures to get the desired effect. We have a strong technical team for handling EN coating, which will ensure the quality standards.
Electroless nickel plating (EN) is a process for depositing a nickel alloy from aqueous solutions onto a substrate or surface without the use of an electric current, rather than electroplating depends on a direct current which reduces nickel ions in the electrolyte to nickel alloy on the substrate. Reduction is a chemical procedure which uses electroless nickel plating also abbreviated as EN. Reduction reduces nickel ions in the solution to nickel metal. This process uses a few different reduction agents; however, the most common is sodium hypophosphite, which is used in over 95% of all EN plating.
Electroless Nickel plating is extremely versatile and reliable. For example, EN plating avoids some of the issues of traditional electroplating such as uneven buildup that can require post process grinding. Instead, EN plating provides an even plating thickness that allows for tolerances to be achieved. EN plating also offers some of the best corrosion protection compared to other plated alloys because of this uniformed surface.
