High phosphorus electroless nickel bath has been used to prepare nanocomposite coatings containing nano alumna powders (50 and 300 nm). Deposits were characterized by XRD, optically, by SEM and DSC for its structure, morphology and phase transformation behavior. A single broad peak is observed with a grain size of I .6 nm for both composite coatings. More incorporation was found in composite coatings obtained with 300 nm (C2) alumina particles compare to 50 nm (CI) alumina particles. A single xothermic peak was found for both composite coatings around 340°C. A marginal improvement in hardness was noticed in as plated composite coatings. A 20% increase in microhardness was observed in the heattreated (400°C for 1 hour) for C1 and C2 coatings. Potentiodynamic polarization measurements were also made on these deposits in 3.5% sodium chloride solution.
