An alternative option to painting or powder coating, the plating chemical finishing option helps your component resist corrosion, while reducing friction—feature benefits not found in other chemical finishes.

This finishing option also is known to harden your component's surface. It also can help improve paint adhesion, alter conductivity, and shield radiation, among other purposes.

The options for Electroless Nickel plating include:

  • Low Phosphorus deposits a coating of nickel after pretreatment, to help prevent corrosion and wear.
  • High Phosphorus provides a uniform, hard and high corrosion-resistant surface finish to enhance your component's look.
