Zinc Nickel Plating Line

Zinc Nickel Plating

Zinc nickel is an alloy plate consisting of electrodeposited zinc and nickel. When a chromate conversion coating is applied, this finish offers some of the best corrosion resistance available - in excess of 1000 hours salt spray when tested per ASTM B117. The finish is functional and not for aesthetics, as the alloy lends itself to a vast array of colors after chromating (from light pale yellow to dark purples). The finish offers a good base for painting or other coatings, and it was originally developed as a replacement for cadmium plating.

Saporito Finishing not only provides superior quality Zinc Nickel plating, but we are home to the largest Zinc Nickel Plating line in the entire world.

Advantages of Zinc Nickel Plating

There are many advantages to plating with zinc nickel. Some of these include:

  • Hardness value is 3 times higher than zinc plating alone
  • Superior Corrosion Protection to both white and red corrosion. Chromate coatings can also be applied to increase coating protection, and sealants are available to reduce the coefficient of friction.
  • Wide Variety of Industrial Applications including Marine, Agriculture (zinc nickel has a high resistance to fertilizer), Automotive, and Electronics.
  • Throwing Power and excellent coverage in both current and high current areas
  • Uniform Coating - even on the most complex of shapes
