Creator of Composite Diamond Coating®

Surface Technology, Inc. is the creator and technical leader of CDC - Composite Diamond Coating®, an exceptionally engineered coating of electroless nickel with fine diamond. The synergy of these materials makes CDC an exceptionally hard and wear resistant coating. CDC conforms to even the most complex geometries and is an excellent replacement for chrome plating. STI makes CDC available via coating services from its production facility as well as chemical products sold directly, through a network of distributors, and by agreement with licensees worldwide.

Contact STI for One-Plate® Electroless Nickel solutions, the simplest EN in the world. These One-Plate® systems use just one “Q” solution for both bath make-up and replenishment. This innovation by STI overcomes the many shortcomings of using three A, B, and C solutions. Available in low, medium, high phosphorous, and composite EN varieties. Naturally, all are RoHS compliant.”

Nickel Strippers

Surface Technology, Inc. manufactures a stripping solution for removing electroless nickel.

NiStrip 85 is a non-cyanide, alkaline stripper that dissolves high-phosphorus, electroless nickel deposits up to 5 mils thick from steel by immersion.  NiStrip 85 may also be used to strip electroless nickel deposits from copper and copper alloys, and to strip heat-treated electroless nickel from steel parts or parts that have been used in the field.  NiStrip 85 is not recommended for stripping electroless nickel deposits from assemblies containing manganese, nickel, cobalt, cadmium, zinc, or aluminum.
