Problem with electroless nickel deposition on carbon fibres





March 23, 2010

Hi,

I'm having problems coating my carbon fibres with the electroless nickel deposition method. Do we rinse the carbon fibres each step of the way before pretreatment which includes sentization, activation.

After putting it into the bath solution at pH 8, 80 degrees and 3 mins. Do we wash the carbon fibres with distilled water again? I've tried not washing them and there a lot of sodium remains on it.

Thanks for your help.

regards,

Hi, Edwin. Rinsing is required between every treatment, not only for the good of the parts, but so that you don't cross-contaminate the baths.

But what is the problem? It sounds as if you did not want to rinse. Are you short of distilled water?
