Specifications
Zinc electroplating is a soft, ductile, decorative, corrosion-resistant finish. In most applications, the protection is accomplished by sacrificing itself. The zinc corrodes before iron thereby protecting the base metal. For additional corrosion protection, chromates are applied over the zinc. Chromates used in the zinc electroplating process become a component of the coating. Chromate films are typically very thin, and the chromate coating provides no measurable thickness to the overall coating.
