The simple process of diffused nickel plating is the most effective nickel coating to ensure the highest levels of corrosion resistance via the total encapsulation method of plating. Diffused nickel plating is proven to be more corrosion resistant than even the highest grade stainless steel, and much cheaper.
Diffused nickel plating is so resistant to corrosion, particularly in marine environments, that our customers give mild steel plated in this way 30 year sub-sea guarantees. When independent salt spray testing was carried out on diffused nickel plated components, the experiment was abandoned after 2000 hours because no corrosion could be detected. The diffused nickel plating process has been extensively used in the end-fittings for flexible pipe lines and top-side equipment.
Benefits of diffused nickel plating
- Enhanced performance when compared to even the highest grade stainless steels
- Simple plating process
