Black Zinc-Nickel Plating

Industrial Zinc-Nickel Plating

Zinc-Nickel plating is one of the best corrosion resistant finishes available offering over 5 times the protection of conventional zinc plating and up to 1,500 hours of Neutral Salt Spray test performance. Used to protect steel, cast iron, brass, copper, and other materials, this acid coating is an environmentally safe electroplating option. This finish is ideal for many industries that utilize steel parts for exterior use. We offer the following Zinc-Nickel options:

Zinc-Nickel Finishes

  • High Nickel Zinc-Nickel alloy (10%-15% nickel) + Hexavalent Iridescent Chromate
  • High Nickel Zinc-Nickel alloy (10%-15% nickel) + Trivalent Chromates
  • High Nickel Zinc-Nickel alloy (10%-15% nickel) + Black Trivalent Chromate
  • Rack and Barrel processing available

Gatto Platers can meet many industry specifications including AMS 2417, ASTM B 633, ATSM B841 and ASTM B921. To see a full line of industry plating standards, visit the plating specifications page.
