EN plating on tungsten?


Is it possible to plate Electroless Nickel on a tungsten substrate without using a cyanide copper or chrome strike? We would like to build up .001"-.002" thick of E/N for part salvage. Customer will finish grind to size.

On pg 624 and 5 of Lowenheim's Modern Electroplating there are several methods listed, but they all are nasty and require a vacuum furnace. I would approach this one with great caution unless it is very lucrative in price and quantity.

Looks like this job may be for vacuum coating. If that is acceptable, you may contact me for further discussion.
