Services NiTEC UK Provide

Our services

Electroless Nickel Plating (ENP)

This uniform coating is the perfect solution for critical high-end engineering items such as those used in the defence, healthcare, automotive and aerospace industries.

Diffused Nickel Plating

Diffused nickel plating is proven to be more corrosion resistant than even the highest grade stainless steel, and much cheaper.

SeaTec 100

This revolutionary product has been developed and tested by our specialist team and protects mild steel from salt spray corrosion and marine corrosion for an extensive period of time, making it perfect for use in sub-sea conditions.

Self-Lubricating Coating (Ni-PTFE Plating)

The Ni-PTFE plating process has been used extensively in the automotive, machinery, engineering and mold and die industries. Its properties of low friction wear and self lubrication make it an excellent choice for sliding wear applications.

Copper Plating Systems

Although traditionally used for electroforming or decorative purposes, copper is an excellent conductor and copper plating can be used for EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) and RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) shielding purposes.


Shotblasting is a great way of preparing a surface for the process of electroless nickel plating, and NiTEC have the capacity to shotblast components of up to 20 tonnes in weight.

Heat Treatment

The heat treatments at NiTEC can be used for stress relieving and de-embrittlement as both pre-plate and post-plate treatments. The heat treatment facility at NiTEC consists of a total of 5 furnaces.

Aqua Blasting

Aqua Blasting permits the non-aggressive cleaning of a surface to produce a satin finish on a number of metal materials; which resultantly won’t pick up marks after treatment.

Nickel Boron Plating

Nickel boron is a surface deposit coating that can be applied to a wide range of metals including steel, stainless steel, nickel alloys, aluminium, cobalt alloys, copper alloys, and titanium.
