The use of diffused nickel plating on pipeline end fittings is a fantastic option for protecting them against corrosion.
This simple plating technique is proven to be more corrosion resistant than the highest grade stainless steel, and far cheaper, which is why it is often used on subsea projects and on and offshore applications.
Superior Corrosion Resistance
As experts in metal plating and finishing, us have tested the corrosion resistance of diffused nickel plated components through independent salt spray testing. During the experiment, no corrosion at all was detected, meaning that it was abandoned. In fact, diffused nickel plating is so resistant to corrosion, especially in marine environments, that our customers have given mild steel plated with diffused nickel plating 30 year sub-sea guarantees.
What are the Benefits of Diffused Electroless Nickel Plating?
- Huge cost saving implications compared to other plating techniques or stainless steel
- Greatly enhanced performance when compared to even the highest grade stainless steel
- Superior corrosion resistance for subsea and offshore applications
