Industrial Electroless Nickel Plating


For years, electrolytic plating was the most common process used for nickel plating metals. Due to the nature of the process, irregularities in the thickness and coverage made it hard to be consistent — especially in complicated parts with varying thicknesses and through-holes. Thanks to the creation of electroless nickel plating, these issues have been addressed.


Here at Hard Chrome Specialists, we’re at the forefront of the plating industry and offer some of the most advanced technologies on the market. We’re proud to be a PA leader in industrial electroless nickel plating. Our customers are in York, Harrisburg and across the state and come from many different industry sectors.


What they all have in common is a need for consistent and reliable nickel plating. Our electroless process is suitable for base metals such as titanium and copper — materials that can be difficult to nickel plate with traditional electrolytic plating processes. We have developed our electroless plating to be flexible, which allows us to plate a wide range of materials and sizes.


Advantages of Electroless Nickel Plating


The advantages of choosing an electroless plating process for your nickel plating applications are clear:


  • Improved corrosion resistance due to a more consistent thickness
  • The ability to plate complicated and irregular shapes
  • Lower operating costs due to improved coating quality
  • Improved mold and die release properties for stamping and drawing
  • Uniform nickel coating composition for less waste
  • Reduced downtime due to plating-related issues


These benefits are why our electroless nickel plating business is growing quickly. We have customers from all over PA that are interested in our leading plating processes. Your satisfaction is crucial to us, which is why we will take the time to study your nickel plating application and propose the perfect method. No two products are alike, which is why we treat your project as a unique opportunity to show our expertise and leadership in electroless nickel plating for industrial customers.
