As zinc plating suppliers, we advice our customers on the different types of plating processes. There are many to choose from, however, zinc plating is one of the most popular.
What Is Zinc Plating?
Zinc coatings work by forming a barrier to prevent corrosion of the underlying steel. Additionally, its popularity is due to its low cost and the range of alternative post plating treatments available. Therefore, enabling it to be customised for many varied functions.
These post plating treatments comprise chromate passivates that protect the zinc from oxidation.
Depending on the thickness of zinc specified and the type of passivate chosen the corrosion protection offered can be tailored to the functional needs of the component.
Additionally sealants lubricants and dyes can be applied after passivation to further enhance the functionality of the part.
