The use of electro less nickel coatings on mild steel and copper to improve their corrosion resistance sufficiently for use in solar hot water systems has been assessed with a view to lowering production costs and increasing service life. It was found that the internal plating of copper absorber panels with electroless nickel was a feasible method of increasing their effective working life. Results of research carried out as SERIWA Project No. 430/217.
