Nickel-phosphorus alloy coatings with a high phosphorus content can be deposited by electrolytic means. Apart from nickel, no other heavy metals (e.g. blue or cadmium) are present and the electrolytes are also free of halogenides.

Nickel-phosphorus alloy coatings are also insensitive to contamination with metallic particles. Compared to the high-phosphorus electroless nickel coatings, nickel-phosphorus coatings are X-ray amorphous, diamagnetic, abrasion and corrosion resistant.

Nickel-phosphorus alloy coatings are also used as coatings for subsequent chrome plating or hard gold plating.
