Metal Chem’s Armor Plate EN is a replacement for hard chrome in wear-resistant applications. This ternary electroless nickel alloy not only offers wear resistance with a Taber Wear Index of less than two, but it also provides the additional benefits of electroless nickel (corrosion resistance, uniformity of deposit and the ability to plate the ID without the assistance of current). This EN chemistry is RoHS compliant, is said to be 100 percent chrome-free and an option for any application that requires wear resistance including machinery, firearms, oil and gas equipment and others.
