The deposition of Ni-P-MoS2 composite coatings gives formidable problems due to the fact that Mos2 particles are weakly cataphoretic and strongly hydrophobic and has the tendency to agglomerate. It was found from the study that MoS2 incorporation in electroless nickel-phosphorous system reduced the hardness both in the plated and heat treated conditions. An optimum concentration of 10g/l of MoS2 is recommended for getting good lubrication properties. SEM studies indicated that under heat-treated condition one could see crowding of MoS2 particles on the surface, which accounts for the lubricity of the coating
