Stainless steel is generally used for parts that require corrosion resistance, but stainless steel is expensive.
In the case of products such as precision shafts and pistons, if electroless nickel plating is sufficient to prevent rust, then changing the material from stainless steel to iron steel is an effective way to reduce costs.
Iron steel is more reasonable than stainless steel.
By applying surface treatment such as electroless nickel plating to iron steel, cost reductions can be achieved while maintaining rust-preventive properties.
We, E&H Precision has considerable experience in producing iron steel product with rust prevention plating.
