It does not cover zinc coated wire or sheets. Yellow chromate should get 96 hrs to failure.

Zinc Plating: ASTM B Type II vs. III

This is not considered a decorative finish and will not generate matching parts. Nickel can be deposited soft or hard-dull or bright, depending on process used and conditions employed in plating. What do you say?

SC 2 moderate — Exposure to dry indoor atmospheres but subject to occasional condensation, wear, or abrasion. This applies to all metals.

A heavy chromate will shear under paint and cause the paint to peel. No it does not imply that. Corrosion resistance is a function of thickness. Can be used as an electrical insulation coating. The Zinc coating on the steel does not last shiny for long, and so a further thick layer coating is added, called passivation.

It would be “bright, blue” — that is, shiny and metallic but with a bluish rather than a yellowish cast. Corrosion resistance Colorful ki passivation gives corrosion resistance ability of 96 hours according to ASTM B until white spots-intended to parts used in a high corrosive environment —outdoor. SC 1 mild – Exposure to indoor atmospheres with rare condensation and minimum wear or abrasion. Specification covers standard recommendation practice for cleaning and de-scaling stainless steel astm-g633, equipment and systems.


What type of zinc plating bath is your plater using? The Zinc coating provides a smooth look as well as good anti-corrosive protection. What process variation would produce these different results? It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. atsm-b633

Did you ever get the answers you were looking for? August 31, A. Zinc ASTM-B This specification covers requirements for electrodeposited zinc coatings applied to iron or steel articles to protect them from corrosion. So if I’m interpreting this correct, there is both a color difference and a salt spray difference. Tin is not good for low temperature applications changes structure and loses adhesion when exposed to temperatures below degrees C.

As specified on drawing. 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. That seems a bit discretional to me. Decorative charastreistics The exterior visual determined according to last layer.

The part is currently being produced in China and my local platers are suggesting a dye to get a blue color. Provides very hard ceramic type coating. It still will have Hex Chrome.

All I need to know is what color the types are. High strength steels tensile strength greater than M. 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 component structures where interior paint finishes are not required.

Our Zinc coating is carried out according to: Soft, but is very ductile.

Zinc Coating

The end user must astj-b633 when a part fails, at “white rust” corrosion the chromate has failed or red rust both the chromate and the zinc are gone exposing the base metal. At Professional Plating we are fully committed to meeting your needs for fine quality plating and prompt service. Most aluminum alloys depending on process used. Yellow-iridescent Black Olive Green.


For corrosion protection Ij A: Registered to ISO ASTM B and all other worldwide standards were written around the time when aetm-b633 one spoke about trivalent. Electrical charasteristics As much as the last layer of the passivation is thin the electrical resistivity is low. Color will vary from light tan to black depending on alloy and thickness. Our Barrel Plating line is fully automated and digitally controlled with special programs, and individual recipes to manage cleaning, plating, and chromating operations.

To prevent formation of case during. They share, however, the most basic astj-b633 metal finishing requirements: But if you are looking for something indisputably blue, as opposed to clear with a possible slightly bluish cast, this probably requires dye.

Supplementary treatments shall be in accordance with Recommended Practice B Is there any colour difference OR is there any Salt spray difference?

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.

III zinc plating A discussion started in but continuing through Q. How do you know if it is supposed to be Zinc Yellow or Zinc Clear? Plates uniformly in astm–b633 and cavities does not build up on edges.

Type II chromates are more commonly used where greater corrosion resistance is required, e.
