Nedox Basic Electroless Nickel

Wear resistant coating offers corrosion protection on metals

Nedox® Basic electroless nickel is a high quality electroless nickel process worthy of the Magnaplate name, which delivers superior performance compared to other electroless nickel processes.

Our Nedox Basic electroless nickel coating offers many distinct advantages when plating irregularly-shaped objects, holes, recesses, internal surfaces, valves or threaded parts. This coating features uniform deposit thickness and ductility relative to pure metals, and its high surface hardness and reliable corrosion-resistance makes it ideal for industrial applications.

Electroless Nickel

Instead of electrolytic energy, our Nedox Basic electroless nickel process relies on an autocatalytic reaction to create the plating by depositing nickel. As plated, Nedox Basic's magnetic properties can range from magnetic to non-magnetic depending on the phosphorous content.

Upgrade Your Coating

If you’re looking for even more advanced features, consider upgrading to one of our synergistic Nedox coatings. This family of coatings takes our Nedox Basic electroless nickel to the next level by providing optimal release properties, as well as a lower coefficient of friction. Our Nedox synergistic coatings contain polymers and dry lubricants for reliable lubricity and anti-stick properties.
