Electroless Nickel with Silicon Carbide Plating Services

TWR Service Corporation also provides mid-phosphorus electroless nickel plating embedded with Silicon Carbide particles (ENSC). Composite carbide coating is a unique technology for carbide integration throughout a proprietary, autocatalytic, nickel alloy. Silicon carbide is one of the hardest materials on earth, with a published hardness four times that of hard chrome plating and nitrided steel. When dispersed in an EN matrix, the characteristics of high wear resistance and uniform deposition are achieved. The ingenuity of the matrix is in its of wear & abrasion, particle size, geometry and dispersion, to create the physical properties of carbide, on all conforming surfaces.

Rivaling hard chrome plating, TWR has achieved ENSC taber wear test results with an average TWI of 3.1. As with EN-PTFE, the silicon carbide particles are distributed throughout the entire nickel matrix, continually exposing carbide particles as the plating is worn.
