The simple process of diffused nickel plating is the most effective nickel coating to ensure the highest levels of corrosion resistance via the total encapsulation method of plating. Diffused nickel plating is proven to be more corrosion resistant than even the highest grade stainless steel, and much cheaper.
Diffused nickel plating is so resistant to corrosion, particularly in marine environments, that our customers give mild steel plated in this way 30 year sub-sea guarantees.
The diffused nickel plating process has been extensively used in the end-fittings for flexible pipe lines and top-side equipment.
When independent salt spray testing was carried out on diffused nickel plated components, the experiment was abandoned after 2000 hours because no corrosion could be detected.
The corrosion resistance offered through diffused nickel plating is better than many steels - including the highest grade of stainless steel - because the coating defends the base metal from rusting and oxidisation.
Diffused nickel plating is used in many industries, from food processing to manufacturing to automotive. It is a particular favourite of industries operating in marine and salt environments.
The process of diffused nickel plating also improves the durability and hardness of mechanical parts.
In addition to its impressive functional properties, diffused nickel plating can be used to great effect in the visual appeal of the objects it coats - with finishes from chrome-like shine to metallic black.
The electroless nickel plating process is a high quality, cost effective solution for coating metals such as mild or stainless steel.
