Reduced Ion



NiKlad ECO HP represents a major advancement in low nickel metal electroless nickel technology. It enables the advantages of operating at 50% of the conventional concentration of nickel metal while operating without the use of lead or cadmium. 

Operational advantage

The process can be applied on all types of ferrous and non-ferrous substrates including aluminum, brass, and copper, and exhibits superior initiation and adhesion while offering a pit-free deposit with superior corrosion resistance. 


NiKlad ECO HP offers a high and consistent rate of deposition and excellent solution stability over a wide range of solution workloads and outperforms conventional commercially available systems.
