Medium-phosphorus nickel plating (NiP 5-9%)

Of all of these, this is the most used plating.  Its MAIN CHARACTERISTICS are:

  • Uniformity.
  •  Rugosity: Does not vary in low and medium thicknesses.
  • Appearance: Very bright.
  • Hardness:

    – Just plated: 550-650 Hv.

    – With hardness treatment: 950-1000 Hv.

  • Anti-corrosion level: Medium.

    Neutral Salt Spray (ASTM B-117) (depending on the material and layer thickness) < 100 hours.

  • Maximum recommended layer thickness: 100-125 microns.
  • Wear resistance: Very good.
  • Slightly magnetic.
