Replace Stainless Steel with Electroless Nickel Plating for Large Parts

Electroless nickel is often used as a replacement for stainless steel on large parts.

Stainless steel is very expensive, and it is often difficult to find a source to cast large stainless steel components. A more cost effective and time saving solution is to make large parts out of cast iron and then electroless nickel plate them for corrosion resistance.

Electroless nickel is perfect for plating large machined parts that need to be resistant to corrosion.

Conventional electro-deposit such as hard chrome or electrolytic nickel need to be machined after plating to hold dimensional accuracy. This re-machining on large, electroplated parts can cost hundreds to thousands of pounds. With electroless nickel plating, the job is complete once you have plated the part.

Consider electroless nickel plating

When designing large parts, electroless nickel should be considered if hardness, corrosion resistance, and wear are a concern.

Electroless nickel properties and characteristics often give it a significant advantage over conventional materials and methods. The equipment and methods used at NiTEC mean that even the most difficult large part can be plated correctly and consistently.

As leading specialists in the electroless nickel plating field, we have the facilities to plate large components, unlike small firms.
