Abstract An attempt is made to describe some aspects of incorporation of SIC with the electroless Ni-P coating. Electroless deposited coatings have some advantages over electroplated coatings, in that autocatalytic processes provide a means of applying coatings of uniform thickness to complex shaped articles without the need for an elaborate jigging system. When the electrolessly plated articles are heat treated, materials having good hardness and wear resistance characteristics can be produced. In this present work a suitable bath based on nickel-phosphorous-silicon carbide system has been prepared to study the characteristics of electrolessly composited coating. SEM studies confirm the crystalline structure as well as the incorporation of the SiC particles in the coatings
