Coating a Ni Base Material


I am trying to find the best coating for a Nickel base material. It needs to be >70 hardness on the Rockwell C-scale. A low coef of friction is preferred (no spec but as low as possible).

The base material (Ni) cannot exceed 200degF during the coating process. I am looking to replace the chrome coating which we are presently using.

Do you have any suggestions or words of advice?

Thank you in advance.
