UNRIVALED PROTECTION

Zinc and zinc alloys provide cost-effective, high performance coatings – with minimal change in dimensional tolerances. Together with trivalent chromium passivates and sealers, zinc-based systems offer excellent corrosion resistance for all steel fasteners, thanks to zinc’s electronegative properties to iron.

Our range of anti-corrosion coatings is specified and approved by many of the leading automotive companies worldwide to help protect cars in all elements. Surface treatments help to increase the lifespan of components, improving the perception of quality and ultimate end-user experience. Specifying the correct protection helps to minimize warranty costs and mitigate the risk of field failure – ultimately, maintaining a consistent and reliable performance.

Mechanical Zinc Systems

Mechanical zinc plating and galvanizing systems offer the perfect solution when the potential for hydrogen embrittlement exists. Steel of any hardness can be processed quickly and effectively, offering the same high protection as conventional electroplated zinc deposits. Specified and used by all leading automotive manufacturing companies for over 2 decades.

Zinc Nickel Plating

Zinc-nickel plating is usually applied where specifiers want the highest performance with the lowest deposit thickness. By specifying zinc-nickel, components can resist more than 1000 hours neutral salt spray (ISO 9227 & ASTM B117) with no effect on the dimensional tolerance of threaded components. Components typically plated with zinc-nickel include:

Zinc Plating

Steel and iron components are zinc plated to provide improved corrosion resistance. The protection is largely the result of the zinc deposit acting as an anode to the base metal. This means the zinc corrodes preferentially to the steel, therefore extending component life.
