  • Electroless plating kit questions

    Hi there,

    We bough the small electroless kit the other day and before getting started I would like to know if this kit contains the type of nickel that is best for corrosion resistance, as corrosion protection is what we are merely interested to achieve with this experiment. I have read in an article the following:

    "Getting the Maximum Electroless Nickel Corrosion Resistance:
    There are many options for plating with electroless nickel. Corrosion resistance can best be achieved when using a nickel-phosphorous alloy, while being sure to choose the appropriate level of phosphorous coating that pertains to the nature of the corrosive environment."

    from http://www.sharrettsplating.com/coat...ion-protection

    My question is: In this kit that we bought from Caswell plating, I was unable to identify the breakdown of the nickel compound from the label. Is this compound based with a nickel-phosphorous alloy? If so, what would be the appropriate level of phosphorous coating that pertains to the nature of stainless steel 316L?

    Cheers..

    (By the way, that book in the kit seems like being of an exceptional quality reference, I'm very impressed...)
