Leading UK Zinc Nickel Plating Suppliers
Here at E.C. Williams Ltd, we are one of the UK’s leading zinc nickel barrel platers. Since zinc nickel electroplating was introduced in the 1990s, our electroplating company has invested heavily in this finish.
One Of The Largest And Most Advanced Barrel Lines In The Zinc Nickel Plating Industry
EC Williams now have one of the largest, and most advanced, barrel lines for the zinc nickel plating. Controlled by an advanced software driven system this enables:
- Processing data to be stored for each part number processed, ensuring repeatability and quality control.
- Real time control of current and temperature.
- Chemical additions made accurately based on electrical current throughput.
State Of The Art Processing Line
This state of the art processing line is capable of meeting the stringent demands of our industrial customers, and their OEM customers..
Furthermore, the main market for zinc nickel electroplating is the automotive industry. However, we are now seeing aerospace and off-shore safety critical work adopt this coating to replace cadmium.
Offering A Range Of Post Plating Treatments
We offer a comprehensive range of post zinc nickel plating treatments.
Chromate passivates in trivalent clear are available. In addition, we also offer zinc nickel in black, as well as top coats. For instance, silicate sealants and torque control lubricants.
Furthermore, for high tensile fasteners and springs, we have de-embrittlement facilities.
Meeting The Demands Of The Industry
In addition to ensuring the very highest quality, we also offer a high capacity. Therefore, this ensures that our zinc nickel coatings can meet the demands of industry in terms of both speedy turnaround and large and small batch sizes.
Consistently Competitive Rates
This flexible capacity, together with a system of very accurate pricing, ensures that our rates are consistently competitive.
To certify the coating thickness and the alloy content, we have X-Ray Fluorescence test equipment. The equipment quickly and accurately reports the exact thickness of zinc nickel deposited and its alloy make up.
Maintaining Excellent Consistency
We are expert platers of zinc nickel in the UK. Therefore, we have our own in-house laboratory with a team of trained zinc nickel electroplating technicians. This ensures that our plating solutions are analysed and operated within their optimum parameters, maintaining excellent consistency for all our zinc nickel plated finishes.
For automotive applications we offer PPAP Level 3 support as well as IMDS information.
