Asterion (Indianapolis, IN) recently introduced their TECHNIPLATE E-NIC 1200 high-speed, high-phosphorous electroless nickel process. In addition to improved corrosion and wear resistance, the process imparts a semi-bright deposit that is RoHS-compliant and meets ELV and WEE directives. According to the company, this process also:
- Provides a 10 percent higher throughput versus other electroless nickel processes.
- Is pH self-regulating, so multiple metal turnovers can be employed for both rack and barrel applications.
- Can be engineered to plate complex part geometries without the use of electrodialysis equipment or bleed and feed techniques.
