Zinc provides a decorative and protective coating over a variety of metal substrates. Due to advances in chemical formulation, Zinc Electroplating processes have evolved through the years.
|1. Alkaline cyanide zinc plating|
|2. Alkaline non-cyanide zinc plating|
|3. Chloride zinc plating|
|4. Zinc - Alloy Plating|
Cyanide-based zinc plating has decreased in recent years, due to the development of more efficient and safe non cyanide zinc plating processes. As a result, Chloride Zinc Plating and Zinc Alloy plating has now been increasingly specified in automotive plating and other markets. Specifically, Zinc Nickel Plating provides great corrosion protection through a range of temperatures, along with providing good wear resistance.
