Zinc Plating

The use of Zinc plating is rapidly increasing for rust protection and decorative applications. This is primarily due to a rise in the cost of Nickel metals and increasing restrictions towards using toxic Cadmium in desired applications. Zinc tends to provide a more uniform thickness, does not fill up holes or obliterate threads. It also conserves heating energy to a great extent. Thus, Zinc is an ideal replacement for hot dip galvanizing where high precision is desired. The latest developments of Zinc alloy plating in the conjugation of certain passivation bestow extremely high corrosion resistance to the deposited coating which even surpasses the service life of traditional Nickel Chrome deposits.
