I am looking for any data from prior usage of autocatalytic nickel-phosphorus as an anti-galling coating for threaded 304 stainless steel parts. My parts are 5 1/2" - 8 UN threaded adjustment feet which weigh 27 pounds. Any prior usage specifically as an anti-galling coating on stainless would be useful.Richard P [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]

Hi, Richard. I don't have the specific bibliography you'd probably like to see, but there is constant mention of electroless nickel as an anti-galling coating on these pages. See letters 33894 and 24998 for a quick start, and patience with the search engine will reveal many other threads on the topic. Good luck!
