Electroless deposition is an autocatalytic chemical technique to deposit a layer of metal on a thin work piece in the presence of a reducing agent. In this work the changing structure of nickel deposits on aluminum and its alloys at the early stage of electroless nickel deposition using sodium hypophosphite ion as a reducing agent has been studied. The influences of nickel coating on flexural and dynamic behaviour of aluminium are investigated using experimental and numerical methods. Three-point bending tests are performed on coated & uncoated aluminium. The natural frequency of coated specimen and uncoated specimen has been studied. The nickel coating increases the natural frequency in aluminium. Experimental results are compared with finite element Analysis.
