steel nickel plating / electroless / ISO 9001
Niplate® 600 SiC
Niplate 600 SiC is a composite medium phosphorus (5-9%) electroless nickel plating with silicon carbide grains (SiC) in 20-30% concentration.
MAIN PROPERTIES OF SIC NICKEL SIC
EXTREME HARDNESS, UP TO 1100 HV
The ceramic particles of SiC and the hardening treatments performed after nickel plating permit increasing the hardness of the layer up to 1100 HV.
VERY HIGH WEAR RESISTANCE
Thanks to the tenacity of the electroless nickel matrix and to the extreme hardness of the ceramic particles of SiC, the Niplate 600 SiC coating has greater abrasive and adhesive wear resistance than that of hard chrome.
Uniform and constant thickness over the entire surface, including holes, ideal for precision mechanical engineering pieces with reduced tolerances.
APPLICABLE ON VARIOUS METALS
All the most common alloys used in mechanical engineering can be coated - iron, copper and aluminium alloys.
