The Zinc Nickel process is applied in a (bass) drum and (static) frame system with average thicknesses of 8 microns in transparent, silver, grey, blue, and black finishes, all of them exempt of Cr VI.
Its use is required for benefits with high corrosion resistance with high temperature functional requirements such as those that occur in the engine comworkpiecement.
The coating of Zn Ni, in addition to its high corrosion resistance, stands out for its great hardness against abrasion (workpieces powered by vibration) and chipping (workpieces of the lower areas of the vehicles).
The adhesion of the rubber and its resistance to high vulcanising temperatures, in spite of which it keeps intact the initial corrosion benefits, makes it an ideal coating for Rubber-Metal applications.
The ductility of Zn Ni is excellent in the specific option for this application (High Ductility) and moderate in the Standard version.
Another advantage is its good performance as a base coat for paintings, kataphoresis and subsequent applications by electrophoresis.
It is important to highlight its compatibility with Aluminium materials and that it is one of the best fixings with Stainless Steel.
Finally its great ability to achieve corrosion resistance equal to or superior to those of lamellar Zn makes it an excellent substitute for all those workpieces that due to their geometry cannot be treated with this coating (small footprints, flat workpieces, workpieces with holes, blind holes, subsequent deformation, or new specifications of tire mounting and dismounting)
