Medium Phosphorus

NiKlad ELV 847

NiKlad ELV 847

NiKlad ELV 847 is a lead- and cadmium-free medium phosphorous alloy system for processing ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. It has excellent deposit brightness consistent with systems that incorporate cadmium and is considered mirror bright. This brightness remains consistent throughout the solution life and is a great option for applications that require a highly decorative coating. 

Wear & corrosion resistance

NiKlad ELV 847 provides good wear resistance and exhibits moderate corrosion protection. The system has excellent solution stability while maintaining a high rate of deposition for superior throughput and high efficiency. 


The process is highly robust and versatile and is ideal for high-production facilities that require consistent and predictable performance.
