The 75 °C electroless nickel process: Eco-friendly and cost-effective
About This Webinar
Is it possible to operate an electroless nickel process at 75 °C and still achieve the required plating speed? Yes, it is – with our revolutionary low-temperature mid-P EN process Nichem® MP 75.
Compared to conventional electroless nickel systems, which often require high temperatures to enable the autocatalytic deposition process and achieve the required coating speed, the innovative Nichem® MP 75 process operates at only 75 °C, significantly reducing heating energy consumption and thus the carbon footprint, while lowering operating costs.
In this webinar, our experts Dr. Iulia-Cornelia Baciu and Shakeel Akhtar will share insights into the development of this new low-temperature EN process, and how it helps you improve your electroless nickel operation. We'll explore the synergistic effects of the process components and the most suitable operation parameters, which compensate for the reduced temperature while maintaining high-quality results.
Don't miss this opportunity to discover how our Nichem® MP 75 low-temperature mid-P EN process can benefit your business, while also contributing to a more sustainable future. Join us and be part of the next generation of surface finishing technology.
Topics that we will cover in our webinar:
• Motivation and innovation
• Economic and environmental considerations
• Process design and operation parameters
• Coating properties
• Summary of benefits
