Zinc and Zinc Alloys
Zinc plating offers an economical option for decorative and industrial finishes on metallic substrates. It is possibly second to only Nickel with respect to plating applications. Recent developments have focused on alloy plating of zinc with iron, cobalt etc. to produce exotic finishes with exceptional resistance to corrosion and high durability. Depending upon the practicality of your application, you can choose from a conventional high cyanide zinc plating process to the most modern chloride or other non-cyanide alkaline based processes which are, more recently preferred, for environmental reasons.

Zinc Nickel Plating

•Corrosion Protection
•Sacrifical Corrosion Resistance
•Typical Rack plated component with colour passivate
•1000 hours to White corrosion, 1500 hours to red
corrosion (neutral salt spray)
•Temperature Resistance
•Abrasion resistance – harder than normal Zinc plating

Zinc Iron Plating

•Corrosion Protection
•Sacrifical Corrosion Resistance
•4-5 time bettter performance than ZInc
•Typical Rack plated component with black passivate
•480 hours to White corrosion
•Consistent, lustrous Black finish
•Abrasion resistance – harder than normal Zinc plating

Zinc Tin Plating

•Typical Rack plated component with yellow passivate
•2000+ hours to Red corrosion (neutral salt spray)
•Galvanic Corrosion Protection of Steel Substrates in
contact with Aluminum
•Temperature resistant

Electroless Nickel

•Excellent corrosion protection & resistance
•High hardness and deposit uniformity
•Range of brightness
•Ease of waste treat-ability
•Highest plating rates possible
•Pit free/pore free deposits
•Compressively stressed deposits
•Non-magnetic/Magnetic characteristics.

Alkaline Non-Cyanide Zinc

•Cyanide Free
•Reduce Cost of Waste Treatment
•Covering and throwing power is superior than Zinc
•Vastly Improved corrosion resistance
•Free complexing agents


•Applied to ZInc Plating and trvalent passivation to
further enhance salt spray life
•Predictable torque and tension characteristics
•Improved corrosion resistance after post plating
deformation operations
•Resistance to thermal shock (heat exposure) testing
