Electroless Plating

Electroless plating, also known as chemical or auto-catalytic plating, is a method plating which occur without the use of external electrical power. 

The reaction is accomplished when hydrogen is released by a reducing agent, normally sodium hypophosphite, producing a negative charge on the surface of the part.

The most common electroless plating method is electroless nickel plating although there are other types of electroless plating notably copper and also an immersion method of plating gold.
As well as single metal deposit it is also possible to form composite coatings with either other metallic elements or with organic elements.

Electroless Nickel 

Low phosphorous:-
Bright uniform appearance containing 1 - 3% or medium low at 4 - 6% phosphorous.

Features
Excellent corrosion protection & resistance
Increased High hardness
Bright Deposit
Excellent deposit uniformity
Highest plating rates possible
Pit free/pore free deposits
Solderability/Weldability/Brazeability
Magnetic
Medium phosphorous:- TOP of PAGE
Bright uniform appearance containing 7 - 9% phosphorous.

Features
Excellent corrosion protection resistance
High hardness
Bright Deposit
Excellent deposit uniformity
Highest plating rates possible
Pit free/pore free deposits
Solderability/Weldability/Brazeability

Benefits
Part durability
Improved wear and abrasion characteristics
Eliminates post-plate grinding, maintains tolerances
Fewer reworks and rejects
Maintains part integrity
Functional in various applications

Medium Phos
coatings can be applied in very thin deposits to deposits of 75 microns with good dimensional precision on most metallic substrates, including mild steel, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminium and copper. This allows the designer to choose his substrate and mating parts on the basis of a need for strength, light-weight or corrosion resistance. Any problems of wear or corrosion which might occur with such materials can be overcome
