Paper Abstract

An explanation of the electroless nickel plating process is given and important metallurgical and mechanical properties of the plating are discussed. Optical applications of electroless nickel are described. Machinability tests were conducted with variations in types of plating, thickness of plating, types of substrates, and heat treatment of the plating; results of the testing program are presented.
