Abstract : Deposition rate, phosphorus content, hardness, appearance, and metal distribution are reported for deposits from two acid, hypophosphite type electroless nickel baths, one proprietary and one non-proprietary. The baths were operated under a variety of conditions with variations of composition. Extensive data is given on the relation of deposit hardness to phosphorus content and to heat treatment at 100, 200, and 400C. (Author)
