I have spoken to 2 different people who have told me that if I have a light phosphate coating (such as after using Naval Jelly), that this would help electroless nickel bond to the steel better.

I got my electroless krome kit this past week and am ready to do some plating. There are some parts that I wanted to use Naval jelly to strip the bluing with, but I was concerned about how this would effect the plating.

Will the phosphate coating from Navel Jelly (or even from parkerizing) effect the plating?
