> Electroless Nickel Boron Plating
Miccrolloy™ Electroless Nickel Boron (NiB) is an improvement upon standard nickel boron. This advanced, electroless, nickel boron-alloy is a hard alternative to chromium plating. It is wear resistant, environmentally friendly and has a low co-efficient of friction. Miccrolloy Nickel Boron is proprietary to KC Jones Plating Company.

Designed by KC Jones Plating to withstand the most extreme wear, friction and abrasive environments, Miccrolloy Nickel Boron outperforms other chrome replacements. Coated in an autocatalytic process, Miccrolloy Nickel Boron provides multiple advantages over electroplating, such as high velocity oxygen-fuel (HVOF), thermal spray and physical vapor deposition (PVD).
Why Not Chrome?
Corrosion protection solutions have historically contained toxins. In recent years, the EU’s End of Live Vehicle (ELV) directive and its Restriction of Hazardous Substance (RoHS) directive banned the use of hexavalent chromium. These and other measures have led manufacturers to explore alternative materials.
Miccrolloy Nickel Boron Eliminates the Need for Hard Chrome:
- Outperforms hard chrome and nickel-phosphorous (hardness/wear resistance)
- Withstands high temperatures (melting point of 1080°C)
- Provides greater abrasion and wear resistance
- Increases ductility (due to unique columnar structure)
- Has high hardness (Rockwell 70 C +)
- Low coefficient of friction (rivals EN – Teflon™)
- No hydrogen embrittlement (per ASTM 519)
- Heat dissipation properties
- Technology is well proven (conforms to ASTM B607 and AMS2433C)

Is Miccrolloy Nickel Boron Affordable?
Many hard chrome replacements are expensive. At times, they still contain toxic powders. In contrast, Miccrolloy Nickel Boron is affordable and toxin free.
KC Jones Plating has advanced on standard nickel boron formulations. Its proprietary Miccrolloy Nickel Boron has all the protective qualities of hard chromium and therefore is accepted as a hard chrome replacement. Lastly, it is one hundred percent, environmentally friendly.
