Electrical Barrel Plating
Up to 6,000 kilograms a day
Barrel plating is applied on small to medium size parts such as fasteners, bolts and nuts, hinges, springs, etc. This way of zinc plating at our plant is executed in an entirely automated plating line in which is chosen for a weakly acidic zinc process. This process ensures very bright and ductile zinc layers without chipping off. Because of an excellent throwing power this can be achieved within a limited period of time.
After zinc plating articles generally are passivated for improvement of the corrosion protection. In our rack plating installation it is possible to passivate in the colours blue (clear) and thick layer. All colours are hexavalent chromium free and give an excellent corrosion protection.
After these treatments it is possible to treat the parts with a clear sealant. This for an even higher corrosion protection and lowering of the friction coefficient.
