To enhance the damage and corrosion behaviour for alloys, the coating is found because of the maximum fitted technique. Mg-based alloys have a good range of business application. These alloys show a high specific strength but bad attire and corrosion resistance. A standard coating of Cu, Ni & Zn etc. provides a physical barrier against the wear and tear rate and corrosion attack of magnesium substrate.  In the recent study, plating Ni-P was thru going on AZ91 composite by immersing samples into Nickel sulphate bath in the existence of surfactants. The study of the mechanism of Ni-P deposits was studied utilizing SEM. Ni-P coating was coated consistently within the existence of surfactants. Result of surfactant and Result of Nano-additives ZnO, Al2O3 and SiO with various quantities were examined. 0.5 g/l Nano Al2O3 additive-enhanced the deposition of Ni-P on AZ91 magnesium composite and hereafter the similar consequences are detected just in case of SiO accumulation. Effect of ZnO was also noticed. So is extremely clear that Ni-P coating is extremely effective to scale back the corrosion and rise the wear and tear behaviour if it's used together with Nano additive and therefore the surfactants.
