Providing a clean, smooth finish after plating, Zinc is a popular choice for industrial use. When applied to a substrate, it offers excellent corrosion resistance while remaining affordable.
Zinc can be used as an undercoating for parts that need paint applied to them.
Surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned or passivated to prevent unwanted oxidation (rust) or materials from compromising it’s adhesion. This coating is not preferred when manufacturing spot-welded or assembled parts, as the trapping of toxic materials can occur.
Techmetals uses Zinc plating for industries such as military defense.
