What is Electroless Nickel?

Electroless Nickel is a Nickel alloy, typically Ni-P. The electroless nickel process provides a unique combination of high quality, rapid throughput and turn-round with superb performance due to its unique characteristics primarily achieved due to its lack of need for an electric current.

General Electroless Nickel properties include:

    • Uniform Thickness
    • Excellent Corrosion Resistance
    • Superior Wear Resistance 
    • Hard Deposits (Can increase hardness via post-plate heat treat)
    • Good Lubricity
    • Solderable Deposit
