Electroless Nickel plating, unlike conventional plating processes it does not use electric current to produce a deposit, but rather operates chemically. The Electroless process (autocatalytic deposition), deposits a uniform coating regardless of the shape or surface of the part, thus overcoming the difficulty of uniformly plating irregularly shaped parts or component. Electroless Nickel has gained popularity do to its ability to provide uniform coverage with excellent hardness and high lubricity.
