Pits in Electroless Nickel
We are plating electroless nickel (EN) on leaded brass, but find pits in the EN layer. What is the best way to prepare the leaded brass substrate so that we do not get a pitted finish?
Q&A: Nickel Phosphorous Plating
Can you give me any information about nickel phosphorous electrolytic plating? Does it have the same set of properties as electroless nickel plating?
Alkaline Zinc Plating
Can you give me a reference or two to learn more about the alkaline zinc plating process?
Our company produces oven racks. The base material is a low-carbon steel (SAE 1006/SAE 1008). The racks are nickel-chromium plated. After the process is completed, the plating has the feel and look of sandpaper, and we must have a bright, smooth fin...
Electroless Nickel Plating Problem
We are having trouble plating electroless nickel/boron nitride. The base material is carbon steel. Seventy-five to 80 percent of the parts plate satisfactorily, but the rest of the parts do not plate at all. Can you offer any suggestions on how to s...
EN Coating and Chemical Resistance
Is an electroless nickel coating chemically resistant to a solution of cyanide?
After plating carbon steel with an electroless nickel/boron nitride process, the parts exposed to human perspiration turn black. The thickness of the plate is only 0.0003–0.0005 inch. Is this due to our process, or is it from perspiration that comes...
