Formulating an EN (Electroless Nickel Plating) Solution


I am trying to make Electroless Nickel Solution for my own use. However, My home-brew solution can only last for 3 turnovers. I am using Malic Acid and Amino Acetic Acid as the complex.

I would like to get in touch with anybody who has experience in this field and your help is very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi, Peter. I am pretty sure that you can get the information you need from Gawrilov's "Chemical (Electroless) Nickel Plating".

If anyone wishes to refer you to other literature which they think will help, we'll be happy to list those references. But considering the anonymity of the internet, we can't actually print formulation information here because we have no way of determining what is legitimately owned versus what may be trade secrets. So peer-reviewed published literature may be the way to go. Good luck.
