Electroless nickel plating

ENP SH: High-phosphorus electroless nickel plating

Nickel plating with a high phosphorus content for when very hard coatings are required.


The ENP SH coating is a high-phosphorus electroless nickel plating which creates surfaces with excellent corrosion protection, sliding wear resistance and weldability. Through continuous research and the acquisition of solid, specific know-how, Argos offers ENP SH electroless nickel plating with a hardness much higher than conventional electroless nickel coatings.

More precisely, with the usual heat treatment already used to harden nickel coatings and by setting precise temperatures and cycles, hardness of up to 1200/1300 HV and an extraordinarily compact coating are obtained.

The applications of ENP SH electroless nickel plating are very vast, but given the heat treatment temperatures (from 280°C to 380°C), parts in both simple steel and alloys such as stainless steel are generally used.
