One category of coatings is based on electroless nickel (EN) plating. EN is a chemical process with many inherent features well suited to automotive applications, including hardness, corrosion resistance, and conformity to complex geometries. It is possible to add super-fine particles into the EN to form composite EN coatings. These particles can provide hardness, wear-resistance, low-friction, heat-transfer, and even phosphorescent properties.
