Techmetals is one of the largest platers in the world specializing in quality
electroless nickel and is recognized as an industry leader. We do virtually every
type of electroless nickel plating, from the most corrosion-resistant, high phosphorous
coatings to teflon-nickel and other co-deposits. We handle one or one million pieces
weighing up to 10,000 pounds, with tanks up to 10 feet deep, barrel or rack plating.
Our state-of-the-art facilities offer complete metallurgical back-up. We know the
best plating specifications and will stand behind the results.
This coating covers even the most complex shapes uniformly. Deposits exhibit superior
corrosion resistance and are often used as reduced-cost replacements for stainless
steel. Electroless nickel's high lubricity makes it ideal for molding applications.
Electroless nickel is an alloy coating available in many different formulations.
It exhibits a wide range of characteristics, making the choice of suppliers and
From the formulation of the finest plating solutions to in process quality control,
it takes the finest technology and resources to maintain consistent quality. Techmetals
combines technology and resources to handle challenges and solve problems with an
understanding and sensitivity to customers' needs.
Space shuttle parts are plated with high phosphorous electroless nickel, which increases
corrosion resistance and wearability in a critical application.
High volume plating of precision computer parts to stringent specifications is accomplished
by in-process statistical quality control.
Valves used in heavy corrosion applications for the chemical and oil industries
require a uniform coating of high phosphorous electroless nickel to increase the
parts life significantly.
Headlight molds with a 0.0005 deposit of electroless nickel provide superior corrosion
resistance, even distribution of plating, and excellent release

Techmetal - 103 A high phosphorous
electroless nickel free of heavy metal contaminants. Highly suitable for the food
industry as well as expensive tooling requiring the ultimate in corrosion resistance.
Techmetal - 104 This electroless nickel deposit was developed for jobs that
must meet standard electroless nickel specifications while maintaining a bright
Techmetal - 127 The low phosphorous content of this coating brings many unique
properties to the end user. An as plated hardness of 60 Rockwell C makes this an
ideal coating for aluminum and "even-tempered" alloys requiring a hard surface with
no heat treatment. This deposit also exhibits a higher thermal resistance than other
electroless nickels and is solderable. Applications Uses: Aerospace, Defense, Foundry,
Automotive, and Chemical Industries.
Techmetal - 133 A boron electroless
nickel with low stress and high hardness used in the electronic industry for its
solderability, weldability and high melting point. Applications include lead frames
and relay contractors, however, uses are limited due to cost factors.
