Asterion has introduced Techniplate E-NIC 1200 high-speed, high-phosphorous electroless nickel process, which the comapny says provides exceptional corrosion and wear resistance, as the process imparts a semi-bright deposit that is RoHS-compliant and meets the stringent requirements of the ELV and WEE directives.

The company says Techniplate E-NIC 1200 is production-proven to achieve up to 10 percent higher throughput versus other conventional electroless nickel processes. They say the pH self-regulating process affords multiple metal turnovers and may be employed for both rack and barrel applications. It is engineered to plate complex part geometries, Asterion says, and Techniplate E-NIC 1200 offers consistent deposit properties without the use of costly electrodialysis equipment or inefficient bleed and feed techniques.

Techniplate E-NIC 1200 coatings are designed for corrosion resistance on aluminum, steel and other ferrous substrates, which the company says makes the electroless nickel ideally suited for oil and gas applications such as valves, pump rotors and subsea assemblies. The process is also designed for automotive powertrain applications including drive shafts, as well as engine, fuel and transmission systems, as it provides reliable compressive stress and stable deposits that meet the harsh environmental conditions and quality demands of both markets.
