ELECTROLESS NICKEL :
Phosphorous-nickel alloy base coating obtained by autocatalytic reduction of a nickel salt. May be followed by heat treatment at a temperature between 150 and 650°C (300 and 1200° F) in function of the characteristics required.
Plating thickness very uniform.
Excellent resistance to corrosion and wear.
Hardness obtained: from 550 to 1,000 Vickers depending on the final heat treatment.
Materials suitable for treatment :
All types of materials with a surface suitable for a catalytic reaction.
Application examples :
VALVES' COCK - DISTRIBUTORS' PISTONS - PLASTIC INJECTION MOULDS - JACK BODIES - ACCUMULATORS' BODIES - CLOSING PLATES FOR MANHOLES - MOULD BEARINGS FOR GLASS INDUSTRY - SYNCHRONISATORS - AXLES FOR WINDSCREEP WIPERS - JACK RODS - RODS FOR VALVES CONTROL - AXLES FORBREAK CONTROL
