ODU nickel phosphorus and non-magnetic ODU nickel phosphorus are surfaces developed by ODU. They possess exceptional properties and offer a particularly high resistance to wear and corrosion protection. As a specialist and expert in surface engineering, ODU also develops in-house, tailored solutions for specific customer needs.

Thus, the ONIP-A surface version is non-magnetic and was developed with a focus on the specific needs of the medical technology sector, among others.

ONIP and ONIP-A parts are finished in our state-of-the-art barrel/Vibrobot plating facility.

  • Even layer distribution for high dimensional accuracy
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Good tribological properties
  • Good diffusion behavior between non-ferrous metals and precious metals
  • Significantly harder than electrolytically deposited nickel
  • Conforms to RoHS directive 2002/95/EG
  • Outstanding solderability
  • Autoclave-resistant up to 500 cycles
