Our proprietary Nickel Silicon Carbide (NSC) plating process is far superior to OEM Nikasil plating with better wear characteristics, oil retention, lower friction, and improved heat transfer. We can strip OEM plated blocks and re-plate to OEM size on all Nikasil engine blocks.

Nikasil | Chemical Coating For Engine Cylinders | …

Nikasil (an abbreviation of nickel silicon-carbide) is an electroplated composite coating comprising of a nickel matrix holding silicon carbide particles in place (similar to rocks and cement in concrete). The surface nickel is honed or machined away, exposing the silicon carbine which provides a very hard surface for the piston rings to run on.

22/2/2005· However, "Nikasil" may be a trade name registerd by the German company, Mahle. Mahle has been producing Nikasil cylinders since the seventies. And their quality is a world class leader. I have been using "Nikasil" or clone cylinder coatings since the early ''70''s.

NiCom Nikasil Coatings - Hard Chrome Plating …

NiCom Nickel Silicon Carbide Dispersion Coating NiCom (Nikasil) is an electro-composite coating - consisting of a nickel metal matrix with hard particulate dispersed uniformly within it. The process involves electroplating nickel in the presence of hard particulates, such as SiC, under conditions allowing the hard particulate to co-deposit with the nickel.

ALUSIL vs NIKASIL CYLINDERS - Looking 4 Spares

Nikasil was the new plating formula of nickel-silicon-carbide for the eighties and later nineties. Today you can choose from companies around the world doing ''their own'' version of Nikasil. In South Africa there is probably only one company that can assist with the process at more than twice the cost of any other other replacement piston sleeve processes on the market today.

Is Nikasil magnetic?

Nikasil is a trademarked electrodeposited lipophilic nickel matrix silicon carbide coating for engine components, mainly piston engine cylinder liners. Additionally, what is the Nikasil problem? The Nikasil issue is a problem that affects all BMWs with M60 and M52 engines.
