How Does Electroplating Work for You?
An electrical current is used to coat a conductive item with a thin layer of material such as zinc nickel, zinc, and zinc-iron. This process is called electroplating and it offers a protective coating to many objects. Electroplating is used to protect otherwise weaker items that need an added element of protection from corrosion and abrasive use.
What Are the Benefits of Zinc-Nickel Alloy Plating?
- Whiskers are eliminated while a product is bent after it has been plated.
- Deposits at high current densities are still burn-free and bright.
- As a function of the current density, there is a minimal variation of nickel content.
- Deposits exhibit adhesion characteristics that are excellent and blister free.
- This type of plating provides great covering power with the uniformity of plate distribution.
- You get an excellent cadmium replacement.
- Before and after thermal shock deposits offer incomparable corrosion protection.
- Up to 360 hours to white rust for estimated salt spray results.
- 1000+ hours to red rust for estimated salt spray results.
- As a function of current density, there is a minimal variation of nickel content.
