The three most required properties in the application of electroless nickel coatings are wear protection, corrosion resistance and contour accuracy. This is followed by solderability, good friction characteristics, high ductility and certain magnetic properties. Often several of the properties listed are required at the same time. Although the electroless nickel coatings are very versatile, in practice it is usually not possible to optimally fulfil multi-dimensional requirements with just one layer. Therefore, it is a great advantage to be able to adjust the properties of DURNI-COAT® coatings within certain limits.
The selection of the suitable coating variant should be made in close cooperation between the user and the coater. This is the only way to achieve the quality of the electroless nickel coatings in addition to cost-effectiveness.
