High phosphorus electroless nickel provides the highest levels of corrosion resistance. It is often used in industries that require high levels of resistance to strongly acidic corrosive environments, for example, coal mining and oil drilling.
Electroless nickel containing high levels of phosphorus has a low degree of solderability, and will only be solderable for a limited time after plating. This makes it perfect for electronic parts such as connector housings and semiconductor packaging.
The microhardness levels of high phosphorus electroless nickel coatings range up about 600 VPN. This type of nickel coating makes for low levels of surface porosity, and is not prone to staining.
Also, when the phosphorus content is greater than 11.2%, deposits are non-magnetic.
Features of high phosphorus electroless nickel:
- Corrosion resistant
- Fast deposition rate throughout life
- Consistent deposition rate throughout life
- Very stable and robust
