Electroless Nickel Plating (TM133)
Electroless Nickel (EN) with Boron has low internal stress. This coating is uniform and has excellent wear resistance.
In addition, it has good solderability, weldability and excellent wear resistance — with a hardness of 63-65 Rockwell C as plated and heat treatable to 1200-1300 KNH 100, approximately (80 Rockwell C).
Our Nickel Boron has a much lower coefficient of friction than chrome. This deposit is often used to replace hard chrome, carbide and even titanium nitride.
