Nickel plating combines high strength and uniform deposition to enhance part durability and aesthetics. Treated parts resist corrosion, galling and wear, ensuring greater performance and long life under adverse conditions. Our proprietary processes create coatings that can outperform many common nickel-based plating technologies and provide surface enhancements that are superior to chrome and stainless steel.
Choose from a variety of processes and coating constructions. For example, our Nedox® electroless nickel plating family includes a ceramic composition for applications that may not tolerate polymers and dry lubricants. Magnaplate HMF® is based on a multi-step process that creates slippery surfaces with very low friction, and Hi-T-Lube® leverages patented matrix construction for exceptional performance under severe conditions.
Applications and Industries
Nickel plating is well-proven in diverse applications and industries including guided missile system and aircraft support equipment in aerospace, robot gears and bearings for automated manufacturing, tablet presses and diagnostic equipment in the pharmaceutical and medical industries, oil and gas installations, chemical processing, food and beverage processing and paper and packaging equipment.

Keeping packaging equipment up and running is top priority for engineers and plant personnel. Faced with ever-increasing productivity benchmarks based on fast and efficient operation, packaging engineers must continually fight against issues such as sticking, premature wear, abrasion and corrosion. To eliminate these challenges, nano-engineered coatings are being used to protect machine components and solve performance problems in food, pharmaceutical and consumer goods packaging.
The development of computer-controlled asphalt testing equipment to simulate and then quantify and predict the punishment which various asphalt mixes will be able to endure when used to pave actual roads has placed enormous burdens on the components of that test equipment. To stand up to simulations of heavy road wear, equipment designers have had to look beyond the conventional and to seek out materials that could endure tremendous stress. That was precisely the position in which the worldwide, leading supplier of such equipment, Pine Instrument Company of Grove City, Pennsylvania, found itself.
