Adhesion Intensity Kanigen Plating on 15-5PH


We are going to do Kanigen plating on 17-4PH.

The specifications are: Thickness will be 0.01 mm, 200 °C * 2hour heat treatment after plating.

Please inform us: adhesion intensity of the Kanigen plating on 15-5PH and carbon steel, and method of measurement of adhesion intensity.

Best regards.

Kanigen was the original electroless nickel process. It was my impression that they had been passed by with better technology, but the name keeps showing up. If this is not a "home brew" EN, ask the vendor for the process for that information. They are the only one that have that data as every proprietary process has very slightly different properties.

From Kanigen is understood electroless nickel, as it was the first name of the patent.

For physical and engineering data there are numerous books, one of the most complete and comprehensive is the Metals Handbook Edited by the American Society of Metals (or ASM) in Ohio, USA. From that I would say that PH steels would have 20,000 lbs/square inch adhesion at least when properly processed.

However, if you are serious about this you must have a good supplier behind you to achieve optimal results. No book will ever do it by itself.
