Electroplated nickel is commercially important with upwards oftonnes deposited annually worldwide. This widespread use reflects the useful properties of nickel as a coating and its versatility.

A feature of electroplating is that, by modifying the. As specialists in the process of electroless nickel plating, we’ve listed the top properties of the coating which make it such a popular choice for a number of industries.

Hardness The hardness of electroless nickel coatings depends on the phosphorus content, and can be increased by heat treatment which will in turn increase wear resistance.

Therefore, any coatings for the equipment and completion in thermal production should provide significant anti-scaling surface properties. This paper presents a detailed study, including field and laboratory testing, on application of the Electroless Nickel Coating (EN-coating Author: Da Zhu, Lu Gong, Xiaoyong Qiu, Wenjihao Hu, Jun Huang, Ling Zhang, Vahidoddin Fattahpour, Mahdi Mahm.

It touches upon all aspects of electroless nickel, from the fundamentals (including thermodynamics of electroless plating, bath chemistry, and substrate preparation) to more applied areas of the field such as bath replenishment, composite coatings, post-treatments, polyalloys, graded and multilayer coatings, ultrasound assistance, applications.

Coatings are a well-established form of surface engineering.

Several types of coating processes exist which provide protection of the metal surface against corrosion and wear. Among these, electroless nickel (EN) has emerged as a protective coating and has found widespread industrial acceptance due to its valuable properties (Sahoo and Das Author: Suman Kalyan Das, Supriyo Roy, Prasanta Sahoo.

Electroless Nickel describes the plating of nickel deposits onto a suitable catalytic substrate by chemical reduction. These deposits generally contain up to 12% phosphorus by weight and unlike electroplated coatings, electroless nickel (EN) is applied without the use of external DC current via rectifiers and anodes.

Structure and mechanical properties of electroless nickel-boride (Ni–B) thin film coatings on S7 steel substrate were studied in as-plated and annealed electroless bath does not contain Pb, Cd, or Ta in the stabilizer agents.

The mechanical properties of the Ni–B coatings were obtained from nanoindentation measurements. Models by Korsusky and King were used to obtain hardness Cited by: Principalapplicationsof electroless nickel coatings are shown i n Fig. Resistance again st wear and corrosion are the main strength of el ectroless nickel coverings.

This book describes the chemical principles of the major electroless processes and the practical applications of these techniques in the industry.

Thanks to the coordinated efforts of 26 individual authors - this book fills the void which has existed for a complete reference on electroless.
