One-Plate® is the simplest electroless nickel bath ever!  The new One-Plate® EN system uses just one "Q" component for both makeup and replenishment. One-Plate® overcomes the many shortcomings of the decades-old practice of using three different components. Forget your A,B,C's.  All you need is Q.   
 
The One-Plate® 1001 system is super bright, medium phosphorous, RoHS, self pH maintaining, with a long life and low metal drag-out. The One-Plate® 2001 system has all the same features in a high phosphorous version.

These One-Plate® systems even work for composite EN plating with particles such as PTFE, diamond, boron nitride, silicon carbide, and others; making this technology even more versatile and convenient for the plater.
