Zinc-nickel plating is rapidly becoming the “plating process of choice” for those who need their metal parts to have exceptionally strong resistance to corrosion, wear and abrasion and therefore last longer. The addition of the nickel to create the zinc alloy acts to provide a strong barrier to the natural processes of corrosion, wear and damage. Zinc-Nickel electroplating is used to protect steel, cast iron, stainless steel, copper, and brass. Zinc-Nickel is recognized as an environmentally safe alternative to cadmium electroplating. In specific applications, Zinc-Nickel demonstrates equivalent, or better, corrosion properties when compared to cadmium and electroless nickel. Zinc-Nickel is normally applied for corrosion protection purposes, and functions as a "sacrificial coating", corroding before the base material. We currently use a colored trivalent chromate finish, but are able to provide others at customer request.
