The choice for any corrosive materials project, Electroless Nickel offers superior protection against oxidation, along with moderate abrasion resistance properties. Ideal in automated equipment, clean room and medical applications.
Electroless Nickel (Flash .0002 - .0003)
A thin, uniform coating that provides good corrosion-free protection.
Electroless Nickel Plating (Build Up)
Used to uniformly plate specific areas where you may need to correct an out-of-tolerance specification, these precision “build-ups” are applied in thicknesses of up to .003 and may require minimal to no machining or rework after plating.
