Electroless Nickel Plating Lexington KY

Electroless Nickel is heavily used for OEM spec work in the oil and gas industries, as well as automotive, aerospace, agricultural, medical, lighting, and telecom industries. It offers several functional advantages such as the uniform thickness of deposits over complex part geometries. It is commonly used in bearings, gears, medical parts, and aerospace components.

Applicable Electroless Nickel Plating Substrates

  •  Iron
  •  Steel

Benefits of Electroless Nickel Plating

  •  Electroless nickel plating is less porous than electroplated nickel and provides a barrier of corrosion protection to steel. It can be applied with zero or little compressive stress making it gentle in application.
  •  No electricity is required for ENP, making it a more accurate and efficient and cost-effective coating process. It can be completed with less equipment and fewer coats than electroplating to create a stronger, high-quality finish.
  •  Electroless nickel plating provides a large flexibility of thickness and volume of the plating on metal services can easily fill recesses or pits in the metal services. This allows for a wider variety of industrial parts that can be finished with a uniform surface, including oil field valves, valve pumps, drive shafts, electrical/mechanical tools and engineering equipment.
  •  Electroless nickel plating has a hardness of between 68 and 72 on the Rockwell C Scale.

Electrolytic Nickel Plating Lexington KY

Bright Nickel Plating-Due to high levelling properties, bright nickel plating hides polishing lines and other imperfections of the surface of a material, which makes it an appealing option. It produces a bright mirror like finish due to its elevated sulfur content and is also has good conductivity. However, it is not as corrosion resistant as other types of nickel plating.
