Coating & Plating Applications

Electro-Coatings has decades of experience producing coatings to satisfy a wide range of needs. For reduced friction, improved solderability and increased resistance to abrasion and corrosion, Electro-Coatings products are among the very best in the industry.

In many cases, metal components face multiple threats simultaneously. In response, we’ve developed coatings that offer multiple benefits. We can provide coatings that will increase corrosion resistance while also protecting against friction and wear. To learn more about the coating that will be the best fit for your unique needs, contact us.

Friction Control

Friction Control

Every coating in the Electro-Coatings family of friction reduction solutions offers a bonus: additional performance attributes that lengthen working life, adapt to special uses or improve a finished component's cost effectiveness.

  • PTFE
  • Nye-Kote™
  • Hard Chrome
  • Electroless Nickel
  • HVOF
  • Friction Test Data

Wear Resistance

Wear Resistance

Hardness is only one of many benefits delivered by the Electro-Coatings family of wear resistant coatings. Each of our three options help components maintain closer conformity to specified dimensional tolerances.

  • Hard Chrome
  • Nye-Carb™: Silicon Carbide Plating
  • HVOF
  • Wear Test Data

Uniform Thickness

Uniform Thickness

Few metal coatings can match the thickness uniformity of an electroless nickel finish applied by Electro-Coatings. Because these protective coatings are chemically applied, they create deposits of highly consistent depth across all surfaces, including edges and complex interior geometries.

  • Nye-Kote™: Electroless Nickel
  • Nye-Tef™: Electroless Nickel/PTFE
  • Nye-Carb™: Silicon Carbide Plating

Corrosion Resistance

Corrosion Resistance

Corrosion resistant coatings from Electro-Coatings protect metals from corrosion, and give a valuable bonus: extra performance attributes that fight friction, minimize wear and help components maintain precise tolerances.

  • Sul-Croloy™: Sulfamate Nickel/Chrome
  • Sulfamate Nickel
  • Nye-Kote™: Electroless Nickel
  • Kanigen®: electroless nickel process
  • Electralloy™: Hard Chrome Plating
  • Electroplated Zinc
  • HVOF
  • Nye-Croloy™: Electroless Nickel/Hard Chrome
  • Hard Chrome Data
  • Electroless Nickel Data

Easy Solderability

Easy Solderability

While many metal coatings will accept soldering, few offer the wealth of extra application advantages found at Electro-Coatings. Each choice yields a mix of benefits that lower unit cost, improve product durability or maintain adherence to the tightest dimensional tolerances.

  • Copper Plating
  • Sulfamate Nickel
  • Nye-Kote™: Electroless Nickel
  • Kanigen®: electroless nickel process

Abrasion Resistance

Abrasion Resistance

With the Electro-Coatings family of abrasion resistant coatings, hardness is only the beginning. Each of our four options help components maintain closer conformity to specified dimensional tolerances, while maintaining a profitable mix between bond strength, coverage reliability, dimensional stability and cost effectiveness.

  • Electralloy™: Hard Chrome Plating
  • Nye-Kote™: Electroless Nickel
  • Kanigen®: electroless nickel process
  • Nye-Carb™: Silicon Carbide Plating

Hard Coatings

Hard Coatings

For resistance to indentation, scratching, bending or shearing, few coatings can match the strength of Electro-Coatings hard chrome plating. The surface delivers durability through a coefficient of hardness that is among the highest of all metal coatings.
