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.”



STI’s One-Plate® solutions are a breakthrough innovation in electroless nickel (EN) plating: a single solution that works for both make up and replenishment of an EN bath.

They are “made by platers for platers”, and the most advanced EN ever. Available in low, medium and high phosphorous versions. Contact STI to get started with One-Plate® and experience the many benefits of these solutions including:
  • Just one product to order, ship, stock
  • Savings on time, labor, energy, and lab work, due to the ease of using a single component
  • The option of using a single replenishment pump for the single component rather than manual pouring of multiple components
  • Higher quality and consistency as all components in the bath stay in balance
  • Long bath life thanks to consistent chemistry
  • The option of operating the bath in a “Bleed and Feed” method for consistent plating and perpetual bath life, as highlighted in the following article Click Here
  • Full or partial self-pH maintaining solutions
  • RoHS, ELV and similar regulations compliant
  • Meet or exceed MIL-C-26074-D, AMS 2404 C, and other specifications
  • Environmental benefits from a lower nickel concentration drag out and waste at end of the bath life
  • Ability to use One-Plate® baths for composite coating with PTFE, diamond, silicon carbide, boron nitride and other particles, including the most advanced processes for EN-PTFE as in the following article: Click Here.
  • Patented
