The hard plating process features a refined grain surface and harder deposits that emerge from the gold itself being alloyed with a different element — like iron, nickel or cobalt. ENIG plating, or "electroless nickel immersion gold" plating, is much closer to pure gold in that no other elements are used for alloy — making the ENIG ...

Figure 1 shows the standard ENIG process flow involving cleaning/activation of copper surfaces, followed by electroless nickel (EN) and immersion gold (IG).As its name suggests, the EN is chemically reduced, using hypophosphite ions (H2PO2-). As a byproduct of this reaction, some phosphorous co-deposits with the nickel—typically about 6-9% (by weight)—provide corrosion resistance to this ...

autocatalytic process, it is vital to remove all foreign particulates so that plate- out will be virtually eliminated. Plate-out, if allowed to occur, can lead to roughness of the deposit, bath decomposition, and excessive plating costs. The typeof heating that is used in the plating process is also of great concern.
