Zinc Coating

Also, some yellow chromates are clear w. Our barrel, station line enables us to process thousands of pounds of material every day. Zinc plated components vary from one industry to another.

Electrical charasteristics As much as the last layer of the passivation is thin the electrical resistivity is low. Zinc coating with colorful chromate passivation.

Barrel Zinc

The type of passivation is determined according to the required characteristics, and is divided into groups: Materials qualified produce coatings that range in color from clear to iridescent yellow or brown. Our plater would like to go to a clear zinc, but our customer is under ttype assumption that the clear will not do as good a job with corrosion resistance and salt spray life. As much as the last layer of the passivation is thin the electrical resistivity is low.


How do you know if it is supposed to be Zinc Yellow or Zinc Clear?

Try using an acid zinc chloride bath and hype if the casting covers. Available colors are iridescent and black Colorless chromate passivation gives corrosion resistance ability of 12 hours according to ASTM B until white spots-intended to parts used in a light corrosive environment —indoor.

Can anyone give me some direction on how to get the customer to accept going to clear. SC 2 moderate — Exposure to dry indoor atmospheres but subject to occasional condensation, wear, or abrasion. Zinc coating with colorless RoHS compliance passivation.

Thickness Classes for Coatings: All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer.

It does not cover zinc coated wire or sheets. He passed away May 14, Olive green and Black passivation is thick and has high electrical resistance.

That seems a bit discretional to me. What process variation would produce these different results? It still will have Hex Chrome.
