Electroless Deposits on Aluminum


I would like to have any information about electroless nickel deposit on aluminium alloys especially on 7075-T6. If you have information about this kind of deposit on aluminium alloy I'll be pleased.

Hi, Aramaris. After cleaning, etching and desmutting the aluminum, and before electroless nickel plating it you must zincate it. Have you made it that far in your planning?

Probert's "Aluminum How-to" or Mallory & Hajdu's "Electroless Plating" will give you a detailed process cycle. Good luck.

Please get back to us if this did not answer your question sufficiently. Thanks!
