Zinc flake coating systems - Introduction
Alternative to zinc or zinc alloy platingZinc flake coating is a method to deposit electroless a cathodic protecting layer. Additional top coats increase the performance.
The zinc flake coating has significantly increased its market share in recent years, in particular by applications on fastening systems.
approx. 70% of the fastening elements in North America
approx. 50% of the fastening elements in Europe
approx. 30% of the fastening elements in Asia
And still growing!
The trend to high strength steel requires suitable layer systems, which causes no stress corrosion by hydrogen embrittlement.
Zinc Flake Technology – For Highest Corrosion ResistanceEnvironmentally Responsible Corrosion Protection
Zinc flake technology provides a high grade of corrosion protection using combinations of specialized base and top coats. Largely embraced by the fastener industry such coatings find widespread use within a variety of applications. The spectrum is versatile: Ranging from fasteners, hose clamps, clips, or brake discs for the automotive industry, special fasteners in the wind power and construction industry to fasteners and fittings for furniture.
For different applications Atotech offers a comprehensive range of processes including silver and black base coats, organic and inorganic top coats as well as a large variety of lubricants. The finishes are completely Cr(VI)-free and fulfill global automotive requirements. Applied by dip spin, dip drain or spray technology, hydrogen embrittlement is irrelevant.
