Myths And Realities About Zinc Electroplating Dec27

Myths And Realities About Zinc Electroplating...

One of the steps in any type of product manufacturing is choosing the best options for creating individual parts that are durable, long-lasting, and stand up to the demands of the specific application. With the use of any type of metal parts and components, corrosion is one of those critical factors. Choosing a metal finishing option that helps to effectively block corrosion while also remaining cost-effective to complete is a benefit for an OEM. Across all industries, rust and corrosion losses in equipment and structures account for about $276 billion dollars annually in the United States alone. These figures from NASA also report that the total cost to industries around the world is about one trillion dollars a year from corrosion. To offset these losses, most OEMs using parts and components of iron and steel choose zinc electroplating to help to minimize these losses. Myth: Zinc Plating is Dangerous and Toxic The choice of zinc electroplating replaces the highly toxic use of cyanide/ cadmium in the process. Today’s zinc plating is considered a bio-friendly alternative type of process that can be designed to meet both domestic and international standards and regulations. Myth: Zinc Plating is Simple and the Same Between Finishing Companies As with any type of metal finishing process, zinc electroplating has to be completed to exacting specifications to prevent problems with the final finish. Top metal finishing companies are able to provide parts and components with precise, even thickness of the surface, with a fine grain and a bright appearance, which is not always found with inferior quality metal finishing services.

The Pros And Cons Of Zinc Plating...

When it comes to preventing corrosion on parts and components in any industry and for any application, there is no one size fits all solution. There are some options in metal finishing that are more commonly used than others, and zinc plating is one of the most often selected electroplating methods. Parts that are finished with zinc plating processes can be found in most metal products both in the home as well as in commercial applications. Zinc electroplating is used in components in vehicles, equipment, lawn and garden equipment, for military and defense fabrication as well as in the aerospace industry. There are several good reasons to use zinc electroplating. There are also some specific types of applications where another plating option, such as zinc nickel plating, may offer a better option. Low Cost The zinc electroplating process is a low-cost, high-efficiency application. Using barrel or rack plating methods, small or large volume lots can be completed quickly, helping to reduce the cost. It is also a lower cost plating option for medium to large sized part and components, which makes it a good choice for high volume orders and production requirements. Good Corrosion Protection With top throwing power for even distribution of the plating across the surface, there is good corrosion protection noted with standard zinc electroplating. Many of the top metal finishing companies also provide passivation and different options in seal coatings that can be applied after the electroplating, resulting in excellent corrosion resistance at a price that is less than other electroplating options. If excellent corrosion protection is a factor in choosing a process, work with a zinc plating company offering the passivation and coating options. With a quality service provider, the result is a bright, clear and blister-free surface that...
