Specialty EN



NIKLAD ECLIPSE is an oxidizing solution designed to yield a non-reflective, adherent, and abrasion-resistant black surface when a deposit is plated from a low phosphorus EN, such as ENOVA EF 243 or NIKLAD ELV 824, is exposed. 

Operational advantage

NIKLAD ECLIPSE is an easy-to-use immersion process, resistant to contamination, and produces a consistent black finish, regardless of solution loading or part geometry. It operates at ambient temperature, has a very long solution life, and is very simple to maintain and operate. 


The NIKLAD ECLIPSE process is suitable for any application that requires a matte non-reflective black aspect but also requires corrosion protection on complex geometries.
