Abstract

The state of the surface of a material controls how stable and lasting such material will be under the service condition.Wear and corrosion take palce on the contacting surfaces.For an efficient engineering design,the surface has to be protected by different method of serface deposition technique such as electroless-nickel(EN) plating . The firmness and the dependability is built stronly on the morphology of the metallic film. The paper aimed to study the effect of grinding grits,types of activator and planting operation temperatures.....
