What is it ?
Process for the electro plating of steel with an alloy of Zinc and Nickel.
What is consisting of ?
This alloy is used since years for automotive parts which have to pass severe tests of hundreds of hours into the salt spray cell.
NiZ resists more than 3 times compared with conventional pure zinc deposition
How does it work ?
Otomec developed the continuous , In-Line electrolytic treatment by engineering a special galvanic cell where the Nickel and Zinc anodes are located and electrically powered in a way to obtain an alloy of adjustable ratio 12/88% to 15/85 % with accurate precision.
PRODUCTIVITY IS EQUIVALENT TO THE PURE ZINC PLATING WITH SAME CORROSION RESISTANCE
- Less usage of coating material to get the same properties
- Less operating costs compared to conventional zinc coating
- The NiZ Alloy can also be passivated , extending further on the properties against corrosion.
- The NiZ Alloy can be plated on industrial basis with a wide application for commercial outdoor galvanized products
