Electroless nickel plating on aluminum heater


2001

Sir,

I would like to know whether electroless nickel on aluminum heater plate would ensure long life of plating. We have problems of removal of plating if we use ceramic or hard anodizing. It gets cut marks because of continuous rubbing with polyser yarn.

Depending on what you mean by "ceramic", I doubt that electroless nickel plating will outlast it. Of the non ceramics, I think chrome will outlast electroless nickel or hard anodizing in this wear situation. Ted Mooney, finishing.com Teds signature
