Electroless nickel

For high wear and corrosion resistance

A chemically, electrolessly deposited nickel layer records an absolutely uniform metal distribution, since no current density fluctuations can occur due to the system. Further advantages result from the co-incorporation of 9-10% phosphorus.

The nickel layer has a high hardness, which can be controlled by heat treatment. It offers very good corrosion resistance and high abrasion resistance and is mainly used in the automotive, chemical, oil, food, electronics, aerospace, engineering, textile and mining industries.


  • light, semi-glossy coatings
  • Nickel-phosphorus alloy, phosphorus content: 9-10 %.
  • lead and cadmium free
  • Uniform, true-to-shape coating thickness distribution and good dimensional stability, even on geometrically complicated parts, in bores and on the inside of hollow parts
  • due to the crack-free and amorphous deposition, very good corrosion resistance, which is clearly superior to the electroplated nickel layer
  • high hardness in the as-deposited state 450-550 HV0.1, after heat treatment up to 1,000 HV0.1
  • High wear resistance due to high hardness combined with good lubricity
  • Good chemical resistance
  • tarnish resistant
  • optimal gliding behavior
  • solderable
  • Layer thicknesses of 2-60 µm possible depending on technical requirements
