The zinc coatings are classified according to thickness and identified into two types; as coated without supplementary treatments or with colored chromate conversion treatment.

We also work with both Type I as coated, without supplementary treatment and Type II with chromate conversion treatment B specifications for special processing needs.

ASTM B695-04

Download Now White Paper: Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. If an application requires torqueing, exposure to vibration or any handling that could rupture a finish, mechanical plating provides durable metal coating with excellent adhesion. Speak to your local coatings manufacturer for some suggestions. Threaded peaks especially show no build-up plating thickness. What is Hydrogen Embrittlement Hydrogen embrittlement is a phenomenon which causes materials to lose their strength and become brittle.

Surface protection guide for steelwork exposed to atmospheric environments ht tp: Once the plating reaches the desired thickness the parts are then dried and post-plating finishes are applied if required. The tumbling action during plating provides some deburring of parts and saves you money.


The base metal is less chemically active s o that the coating corrodes first. Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors.

The mechanical plating process is a process in which fine metal powders are cold welded to metal components zstm electricity and without heat.

Hot dip galvanising is generally more durable and sturdy than mechanically applied zinc layers. Mechanical Galvanizing does not bb695 valleys of threaded fasteners and their parts mate quickly and easily. The main advantage of mechanical plating over electroplating is the elimination 6b95 hydrogen embrittlement.

In hot-dip galvanizing, threads must be cut or chased after galvanizing, robbing them of protection and requiring extra expense. Register now while it’s still free! Nonmagnetic Coatings on Magnetic Basis Metals. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action.

Join your peers on the Internet’s largest technical engineering professional community. It is informational only and not an official part asttm the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

Neither will be great for long-term marine exposure, I would suggest a high-build organic coating system probably with a zinc-based primer or thermal spray base layer. Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Overall appearance of mechanical galvanizing is superior to the overall appearance of hot galvanizing. The ability to plate zinc, cadmium, tin or lead any mixture of these materials. Even if the mechanical plating finish is scratched, there is still galvanic protection for the base metal.


Parts weighing up to three pound and measuring with a longest dimension up to eighteen inches can be handled, including some that are usually rack excessive build-up o plating on protruding points of the part and leave other areas with thinner spot more vulnerable to corrosion.

CIP offers two post-plating services: Mechanical Galvanizing produces parts that are ready to use without any further processing steps.

The ability to plate flat parts: Mechanical plating takes place at room temperature and does not induce hydrogen embrittlement of which hardened steels are highly susceptible. Specializing in Mechanical Zinc Plating and Galvanizing Uniformity of thickness depends on part size and shape b95 typically thinner deposits on edges and thicker deposits in recesses. Any metal that can be made into a fine powder can be mechanically plated, however CIP specializes in zinc, tin, and aluminum.

The b965 plating process takes place in a tumbling barrel filled with tumbling media e.

Thermal spray probably aluminum would be better than paint for marine exposure. Also – My application are exposed v695 steel members that are placed in GUAM heavy salt marine environmentwhich method would you use for corrosion protection OR if you know of a better way for corrosion protection, please share it.
