Protective coatings are pivotal in the aerospace industry, offering protection from extreme conditions and enhancing safety. Electroless Nickel has been used extensively over the years in the aerospace industry. The properties of electroless nickel are used to advantage this industry. The combination of electroless nickel and PVD coatings offers protection against corrosive environments as well as resistance to extreme wear.
Aluminum is frequently used by engineers in aerospace applications because of its density and, consequently, its light weight. Electroless Nickel coating adds hardness, wear resistance, corrosion protection, and solderability enhancing aluminum’s characteristics.
