The nickel coating of Nickel and Silicon carbons (NiSiC) is characterized by high hardness, high corrosion and wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction.

This type of coating can be used as an alternative to TCC and CCC recesses commonly used for Metal to Metal seals.

Normally Nickel Chemical and Silicon Carbon (NiSiC) deposits are made with an optimum thickness between 30 microns and 50 microns and reach a hardness of 1200/1250 HV.

A peculiar note of this coating is the quick execution times of the deposit and does not require additional work.
