Electroless Nickel

The process by which, an alloy of Nickel and Phosphorous is deposited on to a substrate without the use of an external electrical source. Since the process is electroless, there are no variations in current densities and the deposit thickness is very uniform, even on complicated geometries.

There are three main types of Electroless Nickel:

  • Low Phos – Maximum Hardness
  • Mid Phos – Maximum Brightness
  • Hi Phos – Maximum Corrosion Resistance

Teflon can also be added to the deposit when lubricity is needed.

*Our Electroless Nickel is plated in accordance with Mil-C-26074, ASTM B733 and various Customer specifications.

**Please contact IMF when specifying which process is right for you.

Zinc - Nickel Plating

Zinc Nickel is an alloy plating that consists of 85-90% Zinc and 10-15% Nickel. It is widely used as a replacement for cadmium plating and for engine parts exposed to high temperatures.

The deposit provides Salt Spray protection upwards of 96 hrs to white corrosion and 500 hrs to red rust.

*At IMF we currently plate Zinc Nickel per AMS 2417G.

Black Oxide

Black Oxide is a conversion coating that turns the surface of an iron base substrate to Iron Magnetite, producing a black color. Subsequent oils or waxes applied give the coating its corrosion protection.

*Our Black Oxide is processed in accordance with Mil - C – 13924.
