Electroless nickel plating is a highly corrosion resistant surface, more resistant as the percentage of phosphorus rises.  We plate from a low-phosphrus electroless nickel bath (2-6%) to a high-phosphorus electroless nickel bath (9-14%).  Currently all our electroless nickel baths are RoHS Certifiable and will pass solderability testing per J-STD-002 or MIL-STD-202, Method 208.  Electroless nickel is also very consistent in regard to coverage overall.  It covers surfaces evenly while in the plating bath.  With no current necessary it keeps the edges of the parts from building up heavier as with electrolytic nickel baths.  The electroless bath provides a deposit that follows all contours of the substrate exactly, without building up the edges and corners.  The brighter the finish, the more brittle the deposit.  Plated per MIL-DTL-32119, MIL-C-26074 and AMS-2404/5.
