Nutmeg Nichromold® is a multi-alloy deposit utilizing chromium and nickel phosphorus alloys. This uniform highly abrasion resistant finish also offers superior corrosion protection, increasing the life of complex tools and assemblies. The ability of Nutmeg Nichromold® coating to be applied at a thickness of up to .002", with exceptional uniformity (±.00005"), makes it an effective tool for making dimensional changes on plastic molds, or changing the pitch of threaded components.
Nutmeg Nichromold® has proven to be a highly abrasion resistant coating that significantly increases part life. Its ability to provide excellent adhesion to a wide range of base metals eliminates one of the main causes of poor abrasion resistance.
Nutmeg Nichromold® coating offers superior corrosion protection from materials normally considered to be troublesome, such as poly vinyl chloride in plastic molding applications.

Nutmeg Nichromold Specs
A unique non-electrolytic process providing a bright or semi-bright highly uniform nickel phosphorus alloy coating with good wear properties and excellent corrosion resistance. Deposit thicknesses can be held to within .00005", even over complex shapes, deep recesses, and internal passageways.
Nutmeg Electroless Nickel Specs
Hard Chromium is the benchmark by which all other electrolytic metal finishes are measured. It provides excellent wear properties, corrosion resistance, and low coefficient of friction. As an added service Nutmeg can polish chromium to a spectacular blue-white SPI A1.
