A customer inquired about the characteristics of the workpiece coating after using chemical nickel plating solution? What areas can it be used in?

Based on on-site experience and the characteristics of Ni-809 electroless nickel plating solution, Bigley Technology has analyzed the following six main characteristics:

1. The coating has good uniformity, and workpieces with complex, irregular shapes, deep holes, and grooves can obtain the same thickness of chemical nickel coating.

2. The coating is dense, without pinholes or pits, with good brightness and natural lubrication.

3. The chemical nickel coating has high hardness and wear resistance, and the hardness of the coating after heat treatment is close to that of hard chromium, which is suitable for subsequent mechanical processing requirements.

4. The coating has good corrosion resistance and is resistant to strong alkalis, hydrochloric acid, and organic solvents.

5. The coating has excellent conductivity, with a resistance of 60-120 ohms, which can meet the requirements of electronic equipment usage.

6. The adhesion of the coating is good, which can improve the common problems of peeling, cracking, and other faults that occur in hard chromium coatings.

Due to the above characteristics of electroless nickel plating solution, its application range is wide, mainly listing the following seven industries:

1. Communication industry: such as satellite communication, wireless features, 3C products, etc.

2. Mold industry: such as plastic, rubber, glass, and ceramic industrial molds, which can replace the traditional electroplating hard chromium process.

3. Textile industry: such as yarn guide hooks, power needles, yarn lifting tubes, etc.

4. Precision instruments: such as cameras, clock parts, gears, probes, Machine element, etc.

5. Electronics industry: such as the bottom layer of PCB electroless gold plating, disk drives, listers, fax machine shafts, etc.

6. Chemical industry: such as drilling nozzles, reaction tank conveying pipes, gas switches, etc.

7. Automotive industry: such as electric valves, piston bearings, throttle valves, throttle valves, drive discs, etc.

So, the elestroless nickel plating solution Ni-809 from Bigley can obtain a chemical nickel coating with high hardness, good wear resistance, and corrosion resistance, and its application range is very wide.
