The heat treatments at NiTEC can be used for stress relieving and de-embrittlement as both pre-plate and post-plate treatments.

Here at NiTEC, we also offer high temperature heat treatment solutions for sustained periods, which are used to diffuse the electroless nickel layer into the steel, giving a degree of flexibility to the coating. This process does not affect the increased corrosion protection offered by this type of deposit.

Small components can be loaded onto shelves to maximise the heat treatment capacity and minimise the cost of the treatment for our customers.

The heat treatment facility at NiTEC consists of a total of 5 furnaces.

The staff at NiTEC use chart recording equipment to monitor the temperature changes of both the furnace and the work. This enables us to create heat treatment profiles which determine shotblasting solutions for many different requirements.

Our monitoring also ensures the material achieves the required temperature for the required time, in turn eliminating heat sinks on larger components or mixed loads.

  • More About Heat Treatment

    The electroless nickel plating process is a high quality, cost effective solution to coating metals such as mild or stainless steel and can substantially extend the life of a component.

  • More About Heat Treatment

    We have great flexibility with our approach to the heat treatment of objects, leading to and/or following the plating itself, adapting different elements of the process to best suit the varying products we work with.

Services & Applications

Electroless Nickel Plating

The electroless nickel plating process is a high quality, cost effective solution for coating metals such as mild or stainless steel.

Diffused Nickel Plating

The simple process of diffused nickel plating is the most effective coating to ensure the highest levels of corrosion resistance.
