The Positives of Electroless Nickel
Electroless nickel plating is an auto-catalytic reaction used to deposit a coating of nickel on a substrate.
Unlike electroplating, it is not necessary to pass an electric current through the solution to form a deposit.
This plating technique is to prevent corrosion and wear.
EN techniques can also be used to manufacture composite coatings by suspending powder in the bath.
Electroless nickel plating has several advantages versus electroplating.
Free from flux-density and power supply issues, it provides an even deposit regardless of workpiece geometry, and with the proper pre-plate catalyst, can deposit on non-conductive surfaces.
