Zinc plating

Zinc-nickel plating and coatings: maximum corrosion resistance

Through the Zinc-Nickel coating, a binary alloy containing about 11 to 16 percent nickel is deposited on the part.

Through the Zinc-Nickel coating, a binary alloy containing about 11 to 16 percent nickel is deposited on the part. This treatment ensures maximum corrosion resistance, even with a few microns of thickness and even at high temperatures (+200°C).

The Zinc-Nickel plating is Cr +6-free and complies with RoHS (2002/95/EC), ELV (2000/53/EC) and 2003/36/EC directives. This treatment is approved by major automobile manufacturers.

This treatment provides much higher corrosion resistance in comparison with zinc processes, even on items with complex shapes. This is possible due to excellent uniformity of deposit thicknesses. Exposure to white salts can reach and exceed 196-240 h and 720-800 h for red rust exposure, according to the reference standards ASTM B-117, UNI ISO 9227 and DIN 50021 SS.

The main known standards are: FIAT 9.57409, VW TL-244, VW 13750, BMW GS 90010, OPEL GME 00252, DBL 8451…, DIN 50979, DIN 50962, CAT 1E0397, BREMBO BDS-11.24, DUCATI ST_STR_087, MOTO MORINI M40.02/T and AMS 2417G.

Again, the process can be followed by the application of a black (black) or silver (clear) passivation.

Black zinc-nickel

Zinc-Nickel alloy process in black color.
This type of process provides strength as per various Automotive Specifications.
After coating, a layer of sealant can also be applied to further increase the strengths.

Silver zinc-nickel

Zinc-Nickel alloy process in silver color.
The process provides strength as per various Automotive Specifications.
After coating, a layer of sealant can also be applied to further increase the strengths.
