Nye-Carb®: Nickel Silicon Carbide Coating
What Are The Benefits of Nye-Carb® Nickel Silicon Carbide Coatings?
Few surfaces of any type can match the wear resistance of Nye-Carb®, a chemically applied coating that suspends microscopic, highly uniformly sized particles of silicon carbide in a matrix of electroless nickel (90-93% nickel, 7-10% phosphorous).
The extreme hardness of silicon/nickel carbide...approximately 9 on the Mohs scale, compared to 10 for diamond...makes Nye-Carb a wise choice for components that bear heavy loads in the absence of consistent lubrication. As a bonus, Nye-Carb's silicon carbide content makes it one of the most wear-resistant coatings in the Electro-Coatings line.
Precision Parts using Nickel Silicon Carbide Coatings
Coating consistency is a key benefit of Nye-Carb. It is applied in an electroless process, relying on the chemical reaction between nickel carbide, phosphorus and the metal substrate in a high temperature bath. This avoids the coating inconsistencies of traditional plating. Sharp corners remain sharp with no edge built-up, recesses and blind holes are uniformly coated, thru-holes and bores remain straight and untapered in virtually any geometric configuration.
An Electro-Coatings Exclusive
The durability and performance of Nye-Carb is available only from the coating industry experts at Electro-Coatings. Each application comes with the engineering knowledge and coating craftsmanship of an experienced Electro-Coatings staff, working in a facility equipped with the latest technology for precision coating. The result is consistent quality for industry's most challenging applications, delivered with maximum cost effectiveness.
