There are many advantages to using an electroless nickel coating. As specialists in the process of electroless nickel plating, Electroless Nickel Plating Specialist are often asked about the uniformity of coating that electroless nickel can provide.
The uniformity of an electroless nickel coating makes it perfect for use on engineering components, as a component’s machined tolerances are not deformed by the process.
The coating deposited by the process of electroless nickel plating is based on a chemical reaction. Therefore, the nickel collects in equal thickness over the component, whatever its shape and size.
The uniform coating of the nickel plating means that the surface is very hard wearing, resistant to corrosion and durable in a variety of environments, making it a suitable choice for engineering components.
