ZINC

Zinc plating is a soft, ductile, decorative, marginally solderable, corrosion-resistant finish. Unlike most other commonly plated metals, zinc protects the substrate by sacrificing itself and thus corrodes before the base metal. For corrosion protection, chromates are applied over the zinc. There are acid zinc and alkaline zinc plating, providing customers with an excellent sacrificial protection to steel parts. Acid zinc has high conductivity resulting in a brilliant deposit on the part. While alkaline zinc may not be as bright in appearance, the throwing power of the alkaline process is much better. It is also less brittle and provides a more even thickness. Alkaline zinc is usually the best selection, when the part requires plating in recessed areas or the part will be crimped after plating.

ZINC NICKEL

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Zinc Nickel provides more than three or four times of corrosion resistance than zinc in a salt spray test. The deposit consists of a uniform zinc alloy containing nickel for superior corrosion resistance. The bath has both rack and barrel capability. Chromate conversion coating range from iridescent to bronze, and each can easily be applied to further enhance appearance and corrosion resistance.

BENEFITS: Excellent adhesion and corrosion resistance in high temperature applications. This process provides enhanced hardness and scratch resistance.

 

TIN ZINC

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Tin Zinc is designed to produce a highly corrosion resistant coating. Tin/Zinc is among the most readily solderable coating because it is the critical component of almost all solders. Not only does the electrodeposited Tin alloy with solders, but also alloys with most base metals. The result is a superior metallurgic bond, which provides extended shelf life with minimal degradation of solderability. The bath has both rack and barrel capability. An Iridescent chromate conversion coating can be applied easily to enhance appearance and corrosion resistance.

BENEFITS: Tin Zinc provides excellent solderability an ductility. In addition, corrosion resistance is assured because no cracks are formed on a bent part.

APPLICATIONS: Tin/Zinc is used on fasteners for electrical grounding and other electrically conductive components, when these elements are used in corrosive environments. The deposit can tolerate considerable severe secondary processing because of its superior ductility.

 

ZINC COBALT

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Zinc Cobalt may provide a logical substitute for Cadmium or as an engineering enhancement over current zinc plated components or fasteners. Zinc Cobalt provides excellent corrosion resistance. The process can be used for either rack or barrel applications.

BENEFITS: Zinc Cobalt offers exceptional brightness and leveling ability. Chromate conversion coating ranging from iridescent to black can be applied easily to enhance appearance and corrosion resistance. It has very good ductility, which provides improvement over conventional Zinc.

 

ZINC IRON

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Zinc iron coatings offer economic and aesthetic advantages. They provide deposits with superior resistance to white rust, excellent thickness distribution and outstanding ductility.

BENEFITS: Zinc Iron gives a soft, ductile, decorative, corrosion-resistant finish. Superior salt spray number well over conventional Zinc Plating, highly protective and bright.

 

ZINC TRIVALENT

Hexavalent Chrome is being eliminated from the automotive industry because it is a known carcinogen, and has had environmental issues associated with it. Trivalent coatings were developed to reduce the amount of Hexavalent chromate in the environment without sacrificing corrosion resistance.

BENEFITS: Zinc Trivalent is environmentally friendly and highly protective and bright.
With Zinc Trivalent, deposits are extremely low stressed and blister free and gives excellent covering power and uniformity of plate distribution.

APPLICATIONS: Trivalent chromates are used in automotive and non-automotive applications where it is desirable to eliminate hexavalent chrome and/or achieve the improved performances offered by these finishes. Trivalent is offered in different colors.

 

ZINC IRON TRIVALENT

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: For corrosion protection, Trivalent chromate, which are chemical conversion coatings, s are applied over the zinc. The coating although very thin, adds protection and color.

BENEFITS: Excellent covering power and uniformity of plate distribution and highly protective. Enhances solderability of the product.
