Nickel Electroplate Vs. Electroless Nickel





2000

I am currently reviewing a proposal from a company requesting to replace their nickel electroplating process ( SAE-AMS-QQ-N-290 [affil. link] , Class 1, Grade E) with electroless nickel ( MIL-C-26074 [link is to free spec spec at Defense Logistics Agency, dla.mil], Class 1, Grade B). The parts are contained within plastic fuze cable assemblies, and are not directly exposed to the elements. Are there any issues to be concerned about with this substitute?

It depends on the application, I would guess ductility first for something that is called a cable, then stress, solderability, elongation, ductility, cost.
