In case of electroless nickel this is a precipitation of a nickel-phosphorus alloy which is autocatalytic and free of external current. If required, electroless nickel coats can also be de-plated without affecting the base material.
Dimensional accuracy of the nickel coat
electroplated Nickel electroless nickel
The dimensional accuracy of the coat thickness at a micro level (+/- 2 µm) is guaranteed to be perfect thanks to the process flow. A electroless nickel coat does not require any dimensional correction through mechanical reworking. Depending on the technical requirement coat thicknesses from 2 - 100 µm are possible.Procedure
