Tungsten Carbide is difficult to plate on. You need special pretreatment for that.

Thick EN should also be a special EN. Not all EN processes can plate thick deposits. Consult your supplier.

I am not familiar with the sintering that you mentioned but you cannot plate EN on EN without electrolytic activation in between as it will peel off.
