About Electroless Nickel Plating
About Ductile-Iron

Electroless Nickel surface treatment

Electroless Nickel (EN) plating is an auto-catalytic reaction used to deposit a coating of nickel on a substrate. 
Hyteco offers this as an in-house application to all steel and ductile iron manifolds.
Unlike electroplating, it is not necessary to pass an electric current through the solution to form a deposit. 

Electroless nickel plating has several advantages over electroplating. 
Free from flux-density and power supply issues, it provides an even deposit regardless of workpiece geometry, and uniformly covers the entire hydraulic manifold internally and externally.

One of the most important properties of EN is hardness. The micro-hardness of EN coating is about 500 to 700 HK100 or 45-58 HRC and is equivalent to many hardened alloy steels, with an excellent resistance to wear and abrasion and good corrosive protection.

Main advantages include:
  • Increase hardness and corrosive protection providing increased wear and abrasion resistance.
  • Even coating on internal and external surfaces can be achieved.
  • There is flexibility in plating volume and thickness.
  • The process can plate recesses and blind holes with stable thickness.
  • Bright finishes can be obtained to provide a very professional looking product.
