Reduced Ion Electroless Nickel



ENOVA RI 8111 is a high phosphorus alloy system representing an advanced generation of electroless nickel development. It incorporates innovative “additive” chemistry into a low ionic strength formulation. 


ENOVA RI 8111 is designed to deliver a high deposition rate while providing excellent solution stability over the solution life of the system. It can be applied on all types of ferrous and non-ferrous substrates including brass, copper, and aluminum without the requirement for an additional costly EN strike chemistry. 

Operational advantage

ENOVA RI 8111 provides improved capability in meeting new requirements for nickel air emission and wastewater regulations, achieving reductions of up to 50% for both demands.
