Zinc electroplating is the anti-corrosion standard for protecting steel. Meeting the strict plating standards of the ASTM and Automotive Industry Specifications, zinc plating provides a protective coating that will stand up to your performance challenge while enhancing the appearance of metal components. Heavy build RoHS Compliant passivates add additional protection and performance that meet even the most stringent requirements. We offer zinc plating clear, yellow and black.
Zinc Plating Benefits
Zinc electroplating creates a physical barrier between the base substrate metal and the environment, preventing moisture, oxygen, and chemicals from reaching the metal’s surface. Zinc also acts as a “sacrificial anode,” meaning that it will corrode before the base metal, thus extending the life of the metal component. Zinc plating protects metal parts from rust, tarnish, and oxidation. This preserves their functionality and appearance over time.
Abrasion and Wear Resistance
It can also improve the hardness and strength of the base metal, making it more resistant to friction, impact, and wear. Zinc electroplating can also reduce the coefficient of friction, improving lubricity and smoothness of the surface. Zinc plating can help your metal parts last longer and perform better in harsh conditions.
Zinc electroplating is a safe and environmentally friendly metal finishing technique, because zinc is a non-toxic and recyclable material. Zinc plating does not produce harmful emissions or waste, and it can be easily re-used or re-plated. Zinc coatings also create a non-toxic surface for your metal components, making them suitable for applications that require hygiene, such as food processing, medical, or pharmaceutical industries.
This type of plating enhances the appearance of your metal components, as it adds a shiny and finish to the metal surface. We can customize it to meet your specific design requirements, including by texture, and thickness.
At Surface Coastings, we offer high-quality zinc plating services for a variety of metal components, such as bolts, nuts, washers, screws, brackets, hinges, and more. We use state-of-the-art equipment and processes to ensure consistent and reliable results. We also offer zinc with yellow chromate, black and clear to meet your specific needs and requirements.
