Electroless Nickel (EN) is a chemical method for plating nickel alloys onto metal parts. The alloy can be formed with varying percentages of phosphorus or boron to provide a wide range of hardness, corrosion resistance, magnetism, appearance and other properties. As the process uses no electricity, EN coatings are perfectly uniform thickness across even the most complex shaped parts. EN plating can be applied to virtually any substrate material with the most common being steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper alloys, titanium, and even plastics.
eltec One-Plate® Systems and Their Properties to Meet All Your EN Needs:
The introduction of eltec One-Plate® EN solutions has revolutionized the EN industry. Since the 1950s, EN has been used on a global industrial scale. Over these many decades, the plating industry has used systems consisting of three or more chemical solutions (typically called A, B, and C) to produce EN from a plating bath. What makes eltec One-Plate® so superior to all other EN is that eltec One-Plate® systems only uses one single component to make up and replenish the EN bath, not three or more.
There are eltec One-Plate® solutions for low, medium, and high phosphorous versions of EN. They are “made by platers for platers” to work the way they should in real plating shop conditions.
