Your Metal Finishing Solution

Electroless Nickel Plating

High Quality Electroless Nickel Plating

Electroless nickel is the preferred engineering coating solution for applications requiring high levels of corrosion and wear resistance, deposit uniformity and hardness, lubricity, and solderability. Electroless nickel plating is an autocatalytic chemical process used to deposit a uniform layer of nickel-phosphorous alloy onto stainless steel, copper, aluminum, or brass workpiece, without the necessity of applying electrical current.

Advanced Surface Technologies provides the highest quality electroless nickel plating services available for coating irregularly shaped parts, internal surfaces and cavities where assembly tolerances are critical, prototyping, and your other mission critical projects.

4 Decades of Custom Solutions for Your Unique Finishing Needs

By eliminating the electrical current necessary to perform traditional electrolytic plating processes, electroless nickel plating allows AST to place nickel deposits in hard-to-plate recesses without burning or excessive build up on the outer edges of parts. This unparallelled level of conformity to the plated surface, uniform thickness, and atomic-level smoothness enhances cosmetic finishes, allows repair or salvage of complex machine components, high tech applications such as computer hard drive coating, and other custom solutions for demanding applications in a wide range of industries.
