ELECTROLESS NICKEL

Electroless (chemical) Nickel-Phosphorus Plating is the most important catalytic process used in the last two decades. Licco`s nickel-phosphorus coating have different content of phosphorus. we have three types of coatings: low phosphorus coatings (2-5% P by weight), medium phosphorus coatings (6-9% P by weight) and high phosphorus coatings (>10.5% P by weight). The processes are done in working tanks with capacity of 2000 L and 3m length

SERVICE INFORMATION

Some of the most important characteristics of these coatings are the high ware and corrosion resistance, excellent uniformity, great range of thicknesses, excellent mechanical and physical properties, good solder ability and superficial lubrication.

Electroless Nickel-Phosphorus Coating Process Provides

The plating process is based on a redox reaction where a reducing agent, sodium hypophosphite (NaH2PO2)is oxidized and the nickel ions (Ni2+ are reduced at the surface of the material. The process is called autocatalytic because once the first layer of nickel is plated; this acts as a catalyst for the rest of the process. Consequently there is a lineal ratio between the reaction time and the thickness of the coating.

All these characteristics account for the application of the nickel-phosphorus coatings in a variety of industrial sectors as:

  • automotive

  • aerospace

  • chemical and petrochemical industry

  • electronics

  • food industry

  • marine

  • medical and pharmaceutical industry

  • military
