Electroless Nickel Plating

The ultimate hardness, uniform coverage and corrosion protection

Electroless Nickel is specified when a uniform, hard and highly corrosion resistant coating is required. The Electroless Nickel coating process provides a metal coating through an autocatalytic chemical reaction as opposed to standard electrical deposition techniques. This makes problems normally associated with electroplating (uneven thickness, coverage in hard-to-reach areas, buildup etc.) no longer an issue. Electroless Nickel will guarantee your parts receive 100% plating coverage with uniform coating distribution. Standard applications include needle hubs, valves, air stems and other products which are of difficult geometry or are exposed to aggressive wear & hostile environments.

Now, you can take advantage of all of the benefits of electroless nickel plating and overlay it with STERIChrome™ for a bright, mirror-like and biocompatible finish.


Combine STERIChrome™ with Electroless Nickel Plating for:

  • Strength: 72-80+HRC surface hardness significantly improves instrument wear and abrasion resistance to eliminate galling and fretting
  • Resilience: Maximizes blade integrity to maintain cutting edges throughout operations
  • Protection: Prevents corrosion as a result of sterile processing and laser marking
  • Zero debris: Arrests metallic debris and particulate matter during operation
  • Reduced glare: satin platinum finish gives instruments that long-lasting platinum and chrome color and reduces high intensity light reflection.
