Electroless nickel - tensile strength of deposited layers

The tensile strength is the tension, that can be raised maximal onto a material surface without their destruction. 

For the determination of measured values serve stress-strain diagrams together with corresponding measuring equipment.

As measured size N/mm2 is indicated.
This propertiy is combined closely with the ductility and/or elongation .

In general HP layers have higher values than MP layers - approx. 800 N/mm2 to approx. 500 N/mm2.

If Ni-P-layers are heated, generally the tensile strength decreases  depending on the environmental conditions.
