Electroless Nickel (EN) plating is a chemically applied uniform protective coating that provides superior resistance to corrosion and friction which significantly increases the life of carbon and stainless steel parts.
EN plating provides a uniform deposit regardless of work piece contour and thus has distinct advantages when plating irregularly shaped objects or objects with holes, recesses, or internal surfaces. EN plating is commonly used in engineering coating applications to enhance the life of components exposed to severe conditions of service, such as valves or pump parts.
