Electroplating in Binghamton, NY


Keystone Corporation supplies high-quality Electroless Nickel plating to all customers in the Binghamton, N.Y. area. Electroplating is made by manufacturing an alloy of both Nickel and Phosphorous. Resulting in the deposit of an autocatalytic chemical reaction. This is done without needing an external electrical charge. The process of Electroless Nickel plating deposits metals equally throughout all surfaces, regardless of the part's shape or geometry. The finished look of electroplated products is similar to stainless steel. However, because it is an alloy of Nickle and Phosphorus not only is it aesthetically pleasing but it is also durable. Most engineers who use Electroless Nickel plating like their plating have a phosphorus content of 7%-12%. This is because the higher the content of phosphorus the greater the product's corrosion resistance. There is however a reduced hardness with a deposit higher in phorspurous.

Furthermore, nickel plating has fantastic flexibility in plating volume and thickness. Such deposits are heat treated which lets them compete with the hardness of hard chrome. There is a very low amount of friction produced when the surface is electroplated. Electroless Nickel Plating also provides good coverage in holes or recesses that are not easy to see or get to. Precision allows for uniform plating thicknesses throughout inside and outside surfaces. There are also surface finishes that are great for shielding RF and EMF electronics.
