The NiCaSil Coating process
I am interested in the NiCaSil Process, but am having trouble locating detailed information.Can anyone tell me exactly how the process works and what would be required to set up a small plant for this.Dalan Price

Although I haven't personally seen that spelling, that sounds like nickel silicon carbide plating. This is a nickel plating process where small particles of silicon carbide are suspended in the plating bath and are occluded into the plating. A problem hampering your search is that people spell it every which way. According to Mahle the correct spelling of their trade name is Nikisil. But they are not the only company to offer nickel silicon-carbide plating. Please see letters #551, #1671, #2723, #2858, and #2945 for more info. Good luck.
