The layer with the extraordinary properties!
What is KANIGEN®?
KANIGEN® is a world-renowned brand name for electroless nickel of top quality. With KANIGEN® you have a sophisticated system adapted to current demands. Because, KANIGEN® is always in the process of advanced development spending tremendous time and effort.
guarantees uniform layer thicknesses even in strongly structured surfaces, as the known disadvantages of the method with external power sources do not appear. Reproducible quality is another essential factor of our KANIGEN® technique.
Due to its specific properties, KANIGEN® enables economic solutions in almost all industrial sectors. With KANIGEN® you are using the most experienced chemical-nickel process – worldwide as well as in Germany – in the industrial large-scale application.
- Enables the use of low-quality base material
- Simplifies production, particularly in the area of chipping
- Increases holding times
- Enables the recovery of the target state
- A uniformity and accuracy of layer up to ±2 % saves reworking
- High availability in terms of scarce resources
- Coating quality reproducible at the same level
- Competitive advantages by the increase in product quality
- High dimension accuracy of the KANIGEN® layer up to ±2 %
- Coating quality testable according to DIN
- Optimum adaptation to the respective application conditions
- Product features are positively modified
- A very thin layer undertakes additional functions for the base material
- Extensively independent of materials (even non-metals)
- Protection against corrosion, wear and pollutions
- It is the adhesive base for soldering agents and subsequent coatings
- It is the intermediate layer for porous or fissured end coats
Our results from tests according to DIN and in-house test series are based on coatings from the ongoing production and are dependent on the base material – without test-directed treatment or selection of workpieces. For this reason the transferability in practice is guaranteed. The KANIGEN® technique offers you this security.
Coefficients of friction
