High Phosphorus Electroless Nickel Plating
The high level of phosphorus in electroless nickel plating provides corrosion resistance unmatched by other coatings. The chemical content of high phosphorus electroless nickel plating ranges between 10%-13% & may be adjusted to deliver the level of corrosion resistance desired by an end-user.
Component manufacturers often choose high phosphorus ENP for the high uniformity in coating thickness. Because the coating is transferred to the substrate by chemical reaction rather than an electrical charge (as in electroplating), equal coating density is achieved without respect to the geometry of the object being coated.
Nye-Kote™ is Electro-Coating's exclusive high phosphorus electroless nickel plating. The hardness and highly consistent thickness of Nye-Kote™ plated components create extraordinarily smooth finishes & offer a low friction wear surface. By controlling the chemical reaction in the Nye-Kote™, it is possible to deliver highly accurate coating thicknesses, preserving precise component tolerances.

Electroless Nickel Plating Benefits
- Uniform Thickness - Controllable within +/- 10% of the desired coating thickness with no variation due to surface configuration.
- Wear Resistance - Combining high hardness and low coefficients of friction.
- Cosmetics - exhibiting a smooth, metallic, unblemished surface that can easily be polished to optical standards
- Corrosion Resistance - Low porosity and non-crystalline structure literally encapsulate substrate material
- Surface Wettability - Nickel enhances capillary action for soldering or brazing.
- Release - with natural lubricating qualities, "sticking" is greatly reduced.
High phosphorus ENP is ideal for the Marine Industry due to its ability to perform flawlessly in harsh environments such as seawater.
Nye-Kote™ is also regularly utilized in the following applications:
