1. Nikasil - Wikipedia
Description: Nikasil is a trademarked electrodeposited lipophilic nickel matrix silicon carbide coating for engine components, mainly piston engine cylinder liners.
2. Nikasil Plating - NiCom Nickel Silicon Carbide - U.S. Chrome
Description: NiCom (Nikasil) plating 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.
3. Nikasil Plating - Kustom Kraft Performance
Description: The Nikasil surface treatment process was developed in the late 60s by Mahle the German piston manufacturer, in conjunction with NSU and Daimler Benz (468) originally to provide a wear resistant coating for Al alloy rotor casings fitted to Wankel rotary engines.
4. Nikasil treatment - Revaltec
Description: Nikasil treatment(Niquasil, Nicasil) is a treatment applicable to metal surfaces. It applies to the treatment of contact surfaces in 2 or 4 stroke cylinder engines. The composite coating based on nickel and silicon carbide is electrolytically applied.
5. Fact or Fiction? Engine Hones for Nikasil Cylinders
Description: Nikasil is a nickel-plated silica carbide coating that’s applied to the walls of some engine cylinders. Invented by MAHLE nearly 40 years ago, Nikasil reduces friction and wear, especially in aluminum bores. Nikasil liners improve oil retention, but some engine mechanics avoid this high-performance plating material.
