Until now, there has been a gap in the market for ZinKlad 250 applicators in South China. Fortunately, this is no longer the case. Senrui is officially named the first ZinKlad 250 applicator in the region. ISO 9001, 14000 and IATF 16949 accredited, the business has focused on fasteners for the electronic industry for about 20 years and, in recent years, has extended its services to include automotive applications which require high performance coatings.
What does this mean for the region?
The industry standard for performance consistency, ZinKlad 250 was one of the first hexavalent chromium-free coatings to be adopted by global automotive manufacturers. Production proven for some fifteen years, it continues to deliver excellent corrosion resistance. Specified by global automotive manufacturers including Ford, GM and VW-Audi, today there are more than 50 application lines around the world.
Having a ZinKlad 250 applicator in South China means that the market in the region will benefit from the extensive advantages that ZinKlad 250 provides, including its ability to be applied to all steel components requiring sacrificial protection to automotive standards on a consistent basis.
Mr Piao, Managing Director at Senrui commented: “We have been looking for a hexavalent chromium-free solution that provides reliable and cost-effective coating with a consistent coefficient of friction. With ZinKlad 250, we believe we will be meeting the evolving needs within our region and look forward to the opportunities this will bring.
