Low Phosphorous Electroless Nickel

At Electro-Coatings we offer low phosphorous electroless nickel at our Berkeley, CA, facility. Low phos coatings offer excellent wear & corrosion resistance, especially in high alkaline environments with a hardness up to 60 Rockwell C. This hardness can be compared to Hard Chrome

If you need to plate a component with a complex shape or configuration low phos electroless nickel offers a very uniform thickness inside configurations, as well as for outside surfaces. Low Phos deposits are so uniform that this eliminates grinding after plating.

Low phosphorous nickel plating is also considered a solderable surface, which can be beneficial if your component is a non solderable base. The nickel barrier will inhibit leachate of the base material into the molten solder.
