Try using an acid zinc chloride bath and see if the casting covers. The Zinc coating provides a smooth look as well as good anti-corrosive protection. A Iron or steel with zinc electroplate. It would be “bright, blue” — that is, shiny and metallic but with a axtm-b633 rather than a yellowish cast.

Barrel Zinc – Finishes – Professional Plating Inc.

The electrical resistance of this green layer passivation is very high because it is thick in relative to other passivations. Repair of mechanically damaged iii of anodic coatings conforming to MIL-A will provide effective means of reestablishing corrosion resistance ast-b633 will not restore abrasion resistance of the anodic coating.

Our plater would like to go to a clear zinc, but our customer is under the assumption that the clear will not do as good a job with corrosion resistance and salt spray life. What process variation would produce these different results?

Zinc Coating

Type II chromates are more commonly used where greater corrosion resistance is required, e. According to RoHS the homogeneous and non-homogeneous are defined in such manner that every one astm-b6633 understand that the layer is removable let’s see how.


Zinc plated components vary from one industry to another. The problem may not be with the chromate at all.

ASTM B-633 Type II vs. III zinc plating

Cleaning includes all operations necessary for the removal of surface contaminants from metals to ensure: Olive green passivation is a chromate passivation in a green hue that gives excellent corrosion resistance ability hours in a salt spray test and is a good base for paint.

In 24 years I have only been asked this question once before and I presume it involves phosphating over zinc plating for those heavy phosphating grammage applications, where normal phosphating will not provide enough zinc phosphate that is required in the deposit. Hello Claudio and Doug, My compliments for an excellent round of questions! Olive green and Black passivation is thick and has high electrical resistance.

So if you need to color match, you need to do it with a requirement for compliance with sample parts — not a verbal description.

Go to main content. To calculate it is very difficult, as the plating is a few molecules thick.

The designer and engineer must take into account several considerations to stay at the forefront of the finish potential. Different brands of asgm-b633 conversion chemistry, possibly different plating processes acid zinc vs.

Aluminum with low alloying elements will show practically no color change. Rest in peace, Ken. Corrosion resistance Colorful chromate passivation gives astm-b6333 resistance ability of 96 hours according to ASTM B until white spots-intended to parts used in a high corrosive environment —outdoor. Class 1A For maximum protection from corrosion, for surfaces to aetm-b633 painted or left unpainted. Also, some yellow chromates are clear w. Yellow chromate should get 96 hrs to failure.


Zinc Plating: ASTM B Type II vs. III

Had very high luster in fused condition. Please forgive any resultant repetition or failures of chronological order. What type of zinc plating bath is your plater using? Class 1A chemical conversion coatings are intended to provide corrosion prevention when left unpainted and to improve adhesion of paint finish systems to aluminum and aluminum alloys may be used for all surface treatments of tanks, tubing’s and astk-b633 structures where interior paint finishes are not required.

Nickel can be deposited soft or hard-dull or bright, depending on process used and conditions employed in plating. I’m not a zinc plater, but ‘Type II Clear’ seems self-contradictory. Surfaces left-bare should be heavily chromated.

For urgent projects, we can turn the work around even faster with no loss of quality. Some of today’s proprietary trivalent chromium coatings are very thin and consequently will not generate a highly saturated color though. High strength steels tensile strength greater than M. Coating penetrates base metal as much as builds up on the astm-b63. That seems a bit discretional to me.

Satm-b633 for inside dimensions and irregular shapes where assembly tolerances need uniformity provided by Electroless process. It does not cover zinc-coated wire or sheets. Can be used as an electrical insulation coating.
