Electroless Nickel Plating (Kanigen®)

Kanigen is electroless Nickel plating process (EN plating),
can control plating thickness film with high accuracy to overall parts and can provide various abilities such as high hardness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, etc.

Electroless nickel plating (Kanigen®)

Kanigen (Electroless Nickel plating: EN plating) generate glossy smooth Nickel plating film to overall parts surface.

It is possible to plate on various types of material and various forms of components. It has superior qualities in thickness uniformity, corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance. Electroless plating intends to prolong the life of the material itself and further improve the material’s characteristics.

Name “Kanigen” was adopted by combining the first syllable from the words C(K): Catalytic, Ni: Nickel and Gen: Generation Kanigen has been registered as Trademark of Electroless Plating in Japan by Nihon Kanigen (Group Company of Nihon Parkerizing)
