Interested in Kanigen process


Please explain to me what the Kanigen process is, is it high phos, mid phos, or ? electroless nickel.

My reference indicates that it is a NiP electroless nickel deposit. Since it is proprietary, the best place to look for details is from the manufacturer. I'm sure that you can vary the P content around some midpoint.

I believe that Kanigen was the first commercial E-nickel process.

I had heard several negatives about it when I was first starting out and can not speak to how true they are but are worth investigating from them directly and with competing companies.

They control the entire process, IE: their equipment and chemicals for the entire line. for this, you get to advertise the "Kanigen" nickel.

The second knock was they were higher priced than others.

The third was they had not advanced with the rest of the industry.

Like I said, I do not know how true it is today.

I do know that several companies make excellent electroless nickel and are very competetive. Some have better customer support after the sale than others, largely depending on the area of the country you are in.

You can find their (kanigen and competitors) phone number in some trade pubs and very probably the thomas register or similar publication.

I am not knocking their company, but make sure that it is the product that you want.

Electro-Coatings owns the rights to the Kanigen process in the U.S. It is the orginal E.N. process.
