Abstract : The corrosion behavior of electroless nickel-coated steel has been investigated. The effectiveness of electroless nickel as a coating is strongly dependent on the film homogeneity, thickness, and phosphorous content. Defective electroless nickel coatings are detrimental because of galvanic interaction between the coating and the steel substrate. Keywords: Electroless plating; Pitting; Polarization resistance; Corrosion resistance.
