NIPHOS

Nickel-Phosphor

Electrolytic separated nickel-phosphor-alloy:

  • Excellent corrosion protection
  • Good environmental compatibility (no heavy metals)
  • Colour in warm HIGH-GRADE-STEEL design
  • Also can be used for working pieces which are difficult to access
What is “Niphos”
Niphos is a nickel electrolyte on sulphate basis without strong complex formers, without further heavy metals (lead, cadmium) and is halogenide-free. Besides, Niphos can be used for working pieces which are difficult to access (e.g. pocket holes).

Physical characteristics
Because of the phosphor content (more than 11 %) Niphos is no longer ferromagnetic and extremely corrosion-proof. By combination of these characteristics Niphos also can be used for the high frequency engineering.
Optical characteristics
Niphos does not show the yellow colour well-known from the bright nickel or the cold blue colour from metallic chrome coatings. The colour is similar to HIGH-GRADE STEEL. It gives a fine and high quality appearance to zinc die cast pieces or aluminium profiles ("warmer" than chrome).

Chemical characteristics
As a corrosion protection, Niphos is clearly superior to the conventional in galvanic manner separated nickel coat. Corrosion tests following DIN 50966 have proven that.
