TWR’s Mid Phosphorous “Bright” Electroless Nickel is designed by the manufacturer to provide a high quality electroless nickel deposit from a highly stable plating solution at an economical cost. The bath plates at approximately 0.7-1.0 mil per hour, depositing a Nickel Phosphorus coating that is bright in appearance while maintaining the engineering properties of an Electroless Nickel plate. The deposit’s corrosion resistance functions as a barrier coating. The deposit is completely amorphous (no crystal or phase structure). If the deposit is heat treated, particles of Ni3P will precipitate and the coating crystallizes, resulting in a significant increase in the hardness and wear resistance.
