The selection of a specific grade of EN-plating is done in accordance with the nature of application, where a high hardness and low coefficient of friction is desired, low phosphorous EN is preferred (1-3%P). For general applications where a bright finish is required and the operating conditions are not very corrosive, medium phosphorous (6-8% P) EN is used e.g.… Computer printer rollers, machine components, plastic molding dies etc. Proper process sequence and maintaining the correct operating parameters helps ensure a virtually non-porous deposit of high phosphorous ENP which finds wide application in areas such as valve components, aerospace industry, oil & gas and chemical industries etc.

Electroless nickel plating is an auto-catalytic reaction used to deposit a coating of nickel on a substrate.  This plating technique is to prevent corrosion and wear. Electroless nickel plating has several advantages versus electroplating, it provides an even deposit regardless of workpiece geometry.

Advantages include:

  • Even coating on parts surface can be achieved
  • There is flexibility in plating volume and thickness
  • The process can plate recesses and blind holes with stable thickness
  • Matt, semi-bright or bright finishes can be obtained
