16 Revolution is very protective of its NSC plating process so they asked that we don’t show any pictures. Basically the process consists of a series of acid and water bathes and then the cylinders are placed on fixtures and dipped into tanks for the NSC plating. The thickness of the plating depends on how long the cylinders sit in the tanks. Here is a cylinder that has come out of the NSC process. After plating, the bore gets rough cut to 0.002-0.003 of the final bore size. Due to the hardness of the NSC plating, diamonds are used to finish the bore during the honing process.
