Production of an Electrolytic Alloy Nickel-Tin-Bor
A method for the preparation and properties of an alloy based on nickel is discussed. An electrolyte for the deposition of a tin-nickel alloy has been developed. The influence of electrolysis regimes and electrolyte composition on the physical and mechanical properties (microhardness, spreading coefficient of solder, transient electrical resistance, coating ability to soldering, phase composition, porosity, adhesion, corrosion resistance) of an electrolytic coating based on nickel-tin alloy precipitated from a chloride electrolyte. The possibility of using a tin-nickel alloy as a solderable coating instead of gold and silver is shown.
