Zinc Nickel Plating

The Anochrome Group is the UK’s largest independent specialist surface coatings service provider, offering expert zinc nickel plating services to companies around the world. Anochrome’s first class zinc nickel plating process gives exceptional sacrificial corrosion resistance, and can be adapted to suit many different applications depending on the needs of our clients.

Widely used by industry in general, and gaining an ever increasing market share of the automotive manufacturers in particular, zinc nickel provides sacrificial protection to the underlying iron or steel. The addition of 12-15% by weight of nickel dramatically improves the performance of a zinc nickel finish over the more common electroplated zinc or zinc iron systems.

Anochrome can offer both rack and barrel plated systems with many additional top coats and torque modifying solutions to meet the majority of automotive specifications including Ford S450, and with black passivation, S450b.

What are the advantages of using zinc nickel plating?

Zinc nickel coatings also have a number of advantages above and beyond some of the more basic plated coatings such as:

• High levels of resistance to corrosion with performance levels of up to 1000 hours
• Improved mechanical resistance with hardness values of up to 500 and 600
• Good heat resistance, with possible exposure up to 300°C possible
