Electroless nickel plating

Electroless nickel plating is a metal coating with high corrosion and wear resistance, applicable on precision mechanical parts with complex geometries.

A protective layer of nickel and phosphorus alloy with high hardness, chemical resistance and excellent thickness uniformity is deposited on the part to be coated by means of a chemical reaction.

NIPLATE electroless nickel plating treatments can be applied on all metal alloys commonly used in the mechanical industry. Thanks to its surface features, electroless nickel plating is the first choice treatment to protect the surface of precision mechanical parts.


All metal alloys commonly used in the mechanical engineering field can be coated – iron, copper, and aluminium alloys.


Uniform and constant thickness over the entire surface, including holes. Ideal for precision mechanical engineering pieces with reduced tolerances and complex geometries.


Thanks to high chemical resistance and the absence of porosity of the coating, the pieces treated with Niplate 500 have high corrosion resistance in salt mist and resistance to tarnishing.


Thanks to its hardness and micro crystalline structure Niplate 600 has high wear and fretting resistance.

NIPLATE electroless nickel coatings

NIPLATE® 600 – Medium Phosphorus Electroless Nickel

Wear resistance | Corrosion resistance | ISO 4527 NiP(7)

Niplate 600 is a medium phosphorus (5-9% in P) electroless nickel plating. Niplate 600 is the most commonly used of Niplate coatings thanks to its high wear resistance, good corrosion resistance and its affordability.

NIPLATE® 500 – High Phosphorus Electroless Nickel

Chemical resistance | Corrosion resistance | ISO 4527 NiP(11)

Niplate 500 is a high-phosphorus electroless nickel plating (10-13% in P). It is preferable to other Niplate coatings in case of contact with foods and when resistance to aggressive chemical agents is required.

NIPLATE® 500 PTFE – Electroless Nickel-PTFE

Self-lubrication | Self-adherence

Niplate 500 PTFE is a composite high phosphorus (10-13%) electroless nickel plating containing 25-35% of PTFE particles.

NIPLATE® 600 SiC – Electroless Nickel-SiC

Superior wear resistance

Niplate 600 SiC is a composite medium phosphorus (5-9%) electroless nickel plating with silicon carbide grains (SiC) in 20-30% concentration.
