Nickel Plating Capabilities

  • Electroless Nickel Plating is a chemical process with distinct advantages over electroplating. 
  • Problems associated with electroplating processes such as edge build up, uneven plating and partial plating are uncommon with Electroless Nickel Plating.
  • Corning offers high-quality plating in prototype or production volumes  to meet your specific needs and schedule. 
  • We can process parts up to 30" in diameter and 28" in depth, creating fixtures and masking solutions, as required.
  • Characteristics of our plating include:
    • High wear resistance
    • Uniformity to .0002"
    • Ability to plate recesses and blind holes
    • High corrosion resistance
    • .0002" to .040" thicknesses
    • Produces visible quality optical finishes
    • Low porosity and pitting
  • Base materials include copper, brass, steel, and aluminum alloys
