Bales Metal Surface Solutions’ Diamond EN electroless nickel coating incorporates diamond particles into the electroless nickel for increased durability, protecting tooling from wear. The coating plates as a nickel product, which means it is able to provide even coverage into deep ribs or narrow details without buildup on the edges. The addition of the diamond particles results in a Rockwell hardness of 70 after post-bake, so it can withstand abrasive materials, the company says. The fact that it is a nickel coating also means increased corrosion protection and a coefficient of friction of 0.10 or less.
