NiBRON® /Nickel Boron Coating
What is NiBRON®?
NiBRON® Nickel Boron coating is an engineered surface deposit coating, which is readily applied to a variety of metals:
- Stainless Steel and Nickel Alloys
- Cobalt Alloys
- Copper Alloys
It also resists fretting and galling and has nearly three times wear resistance of medium phosphorus-Electroless nickel, and twice the wear resistance of low phosphorus-Electroless nickel. Its primary purpose is in the replacement of chrome plating.
NiBRON® also accepts dry film lubricant. The application process minimizes any potential for hydrogen embrittlement. NiBRON®'s unique "columnar" structure results in a more ductile deposit, permitting
Thickness for NiBRON® can be maintained within + 100 to 200 micro inches (.0001-.0002) with a 300-3000 micro inches (.0003-.003) per side range.
NiBRON® is Purecoat International, LLC's registered trade name for our proprietary Electroless Nickel-Thallium-Boron coating.
