Electroless nickel - Brochure

PDF logo The MacDermid portflio consistently delivers the superior results demanded by our customers, including ease of use, deposit uniformity, an exceptional corrosion resistant coating and outstanding hardness and wear resistance.

Electroless nickel - Guide

Ebook logo Containing nickel alloy deposits containing up to 13% Phosphorus or up to 5% Boron. These coatings avoid many of the problems associated with electrolytically applied coatings, such as uneven thickness and uniformity.

Electroless nickel ELV - Article

 Ebook logo Environmental compliance, largely driven by governmental legislation includes the RoHS, WEEE, and ELV directives. This article looks at the drivers and subsequent changes in the plating solution chemistry.

Electroless nickel ELV compliance - Paper

 Ebook logo New processes have been introduced which use alternative stabilizers in order to comply with directives such as ELV, RoHS and WEEE. In this paper, electrochemical testing is used to compare conventional and ELV-compliant deposits. Differences in these corrosion resistance coatings due to bath age and deposit thickness are also investigated.

Electroless nickel influence of stress - Paper

 Ebook logo The internal stress of the deposit is an important physical property. High internal stress can lead to deposit cracking and loss of adhesion. The internal stress depends heavily on the formulation and phosphrous content of the process. This paper investigates the formulation and operational factors that influence the internal stress.

Electroless nickel internal stress - Paper

 Ebook logo The internal stress of these deposits has long been known to be a very important physical property. In some cases the stress can be the most important factor to determine the suitability of a deposit for a specific application. This paper discusses the results of internal stress studies on the MacDermid processes.

Electroless nickel without metallic stabilizers - Article

Ebook logo MacDermid made the decision to develop processes containing no metal stabilizers. The results shown in this article are from actual customers, samples plated in their facilities and also their own experiences.

Feed and Control of electroless nickel solutions - Article

 Ebook logo This article is an observation about the pH of these plating solutions and a practical resolution to a problem of pH control. It may allow applicators to eliminate aqua ammonia from their electroless plating operations and replace it with a simple dilute solution of sodium hydroxide. The case is presented in question and answer format, followed by discussion on how to implement.
