Electroless nickel plating deposits a uniform coating of nickel and phosphorous that is chemically reduced onto a metal substrate. The dense coating reduces corrosion and wear.
Poly Coatings is a mid-phosphorous electroless nickel shop, which offers a greater range of flexibility to meet the thickness and hardness needs of clients.
Thickness: The thickness ranges generally from 0.000050 to 0.005 inch per surface.
Hardness: The normal hardness is RC 50-52 or 500 VHN. Electroless nickel can be heat treated to RC 68-70 or 1000 VHN.
Coating Uniformity: Electroless nickel is uniformly distributed over the entire surface including internal and external areas.
Appearance: The surface finish of the basis material affects the appearance. Bright surfaces remain bright and matte finishes remain matte.
Stripping: Electroless nickel can be chemically stripped from the basis material.
Cleaning: Polishing paste, Scotch Brite pad, brass or a stainless steel brush can be used to mechanically clean the coating. Most types of solvents and alkaline material can be used to chemically clean the coating.
