Maximum thickness of electroless nickel





August 4, 2010

We have a customer asking for a thickness of 10 mils on copper.
Is that realistic? Normally we see specs for 1 to 1.5 mils.
Is there a risk of blistering or other adhesion problems?

Pitting is the normal problem that you will run into between 2 and 3 mils. Some formulations will stop plating or will have blotchy plating.
See a couple of recent posts on this subject at this site.

Hi dear
I work in a ball valve manufacturer, we plate balls with nickel electroless process.
How can I plate a ball to high thickness (75 micrometers) without roughness?
