Zinc alloys

Zinc and zinc alloy deposits offer protection to ferrous materials against corrosion and are widely used in many industries. Zinc creates a barrier which acts as a thin sacrificial coating and therefore protects the substrate while Zinc Nickel increases the level of corrosion resistance and is widely used in the automotive industry.
With a wide range of zinc processes (cyanide, alkaline-cyanide-free, weakly acidic with and without boric acid) as well as zinc-iron and zinc-nickel alloy processes (alkaline and weakly acidic), Schlötter provides a broad range of market leading processes. The portfolio also includes a tin-zinc alloy for which Schlötter offers a weakly acidic process.

Zinc is used for

cathodic corrosion protection (CRC) in the automotive industry, aviation and fasteners.
