Electroless Nickel Plating Services – Electroless Nickel Properties
Electroless nickel is a unique coating that does not require an external source of electrons as supplied in a traditional electrolytic plating cell. Rather, electroless nickel is an amorphous nickel-phosphorous alloy deposited by a chemical reduction (reaction) from hypophosphite on a catalytic substrate without the application of external current. Since an applied current is not used in depositing electroless nickel, it is free from the common nonuniformity of traditional electrolytic deposits.
The excellent deposit uniformity of electroless nickel allows plating of various coating thicknesses on any area of a part that is wetted by the solution including blind holes and the inner diameters of tubing or fittings. The phosphorous content in the coating affects the properties of the deposit. In addition, post-plate baking at high temperatures can transition the deposit from an amorphous to crystalline structure greatly increasing hardness.
