Electrodialysis for electroless nickel

We designed EDEN® as electroless nickel regeneration solution. EDEN® allows continuous purification of the electroless nickel bath by removing by-products.

In this way, EDEN® maintains the concentration of all process ingredients within a defined range and guarantees constant deposit quality over a potentially unlimited bath life.
