Diffused electroless nickel

Diffused high phosphorous electroless nickel is a Kanigen® electroless nickel deposit with 10 wt% phosphor (P). After heat treatment > 600° C, a diffusion layer appears in the carbon steel substrate resulting in an enhanced : - Corrosion resistance - Wear resistance in extreme conditionsread more

NiPtef - Electroless Nickel with PTFE

NiPtef is a codeposition plating with Kanigen® nickel as the matrix-material in order to obtain specific functional characteristics. NiPtef is an alternative approach to reduce the dificulties of friction and wear, by incoporating a "lubrificant", in fact PTFE, into the nickel-matrix. When PTFE is more

Kanigen® Electroless Nickel

Kanigen® Nickel is a technical coating, composed of Nickel (Ni) and phosphor (P: wt%= 9 to 12%). This plating is applied using a chemical (electroless) process. The Kanigen® process is an autocatalytic redox-reaction in which nickel ions, in the presence of phosphor compounds, are transferred into a more
