Autocatalytic Black Electroless Nickel Coating

AnoBlack NiTE represents a breakthrough in applying a robust, deep black coating. Unlike electrodeposited coatings which are notorious for non-uniform build-up, AnoBlack NiTE deposits evenly on all surface, making it a perfect candidate for intricate small parts, larger parts with complex internal geometries or highly precision machined optical
housings, lens barrels and the like.

Electroless Nickel Coating AnoBlack NiteThe resulting AnoBlack NiTE surface, about 40 millionths of an inch thick, is a phosphorous enriched, complex black nickel oxide. Color-wise, AnoBlack NiTE has been measured using a spectrophotometer and consistent readings of 22 are obtained. For reference, 1 is absolute black and 100 is total white.
