Electroless Nickel Services

Electroless Nickel

Electrum specializes in electroless nickel plating (Electroless). The electroless nickel plating is widely used on machined parts, but it can also be used to repair machining defects. It offers:

  • A very good wear protection
  • A variable hardness depending on the selected class
  • A colour similar to stainless steel
  • A very uniform deposit, regardless of the part configuration

Here are the specifications that we comply on a regular basis:

SC 2 Average Service - 0.0005"
SC 3 Moderate service - 0.001"
SC 4 Severe Service - 0.003"
