Plating type changes for iron steel products
Updated: Jun 1
Some iron steel products are required to get electroless nickel plated to to ensure rust prevention. Electroless nickel plating is suitable for surface treatment of high-precision parts because it is easy to precisely control the film thickness at +/- 1 micron tolerances, however electroless nickel plating is a costly plating.
Instead of electroless nickel plating, Zinc chromate plating has advantage in plating costs. If your products allow film thickness at +/- 5 microns tolerances, then applying Zinc chromate plating could reduce plating costs.
