About NiTEC Electroless Nickel Plating UK

Established in 1978, NiTEC are leading specialists in the electroless nickel plating process

As a specialist plating company we have developed a wide range of techniques and we are able to provide a high-end, cost-effective service. With 5 production lines and a standard lead time of 5 days, our capacity and turnaround is fast and efficient.

At NiTEC, we have tanks up to 10 metres in length with a lifting capacity of up to 20 metric tonnes. These 2 features are unique in the UK, as the maximum competitive solution is only 3 metres in length. This means that we can plate parts of all sizes, from small pins to large applications such as oil pipelines.

Our onsite laboratory facilities ensure that all our processes are closely controlled. This coupled with our ongoing investment in instrumentation, meaning that thickness and hardness measurements can be obtained using non destructive testing methods, mean that we can maintain our high level of quality.

With over 30 years' experience, we have developed a wide range of techniques including the diffused nickel plating process, to plate all manner of substrates, from common steels to the more exotic types such as titanium.  You can find out more about some of our recent projects on our case studies page and news section.

All our line staff are time served in their own disciplines, meaning that every job is managed by personnel with a knowledge and understanding of the specialist process of electroless nickel plating.

Our capabilities

We have a flexible approach to customer requirements, offering supporting finishes such as bright and matt tin plating and bright copper plating finishing and treatments such as shot blasting and heat treatment.

No job is too large or too small for us as a plating company. We regularly electroless nickel plate components from small pins and connectors to large castings weighing up to 25 tonnes. The shape and volume of our processing can also be changed to accommodate our customer needs. Some of our regular customers enjoy the sport of trying to find something too obscure for us to plate, be it dimensions or material. We are rarely defeated. 

We are constantly improving our service

Working closely with our customers and suppliers, we have developed different types of treatments and techniques to achieve the end use requirements. Our coatings can thus be applied to a wide range of component types and environments ranging from the desert to arctic conditions, to the middle of the ocean, above and beneath the waves. We have recently developed our specialist marine coating, specifically designed to enhance marine corrosion resistanceSEATEC 100 which can sustain harsh marine conditions for thousands of hours.
