The electrical resistance of this green layer passivation is very high because it is thick in relative to other passivations. Asmt coating with colorful chromate passivation. It still will have Hex Chrome. Yellow chromate should get 96 hrs to failure. Different brands of chromate conversion chemistry, possibly different plating processes acid zinc vs. From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: Can anyone give me some direction on how to get the customer to accept going to clear.

Surfaces left-bare should be heavily chromated. Thank you for your hard work which the finishing world continues to benefit from.

The revision addresses RoHS concerns and specifically allows non-hexavalent chromate treatments. No it does not imply that. Go to main content. Kaushik, The “Types” define supplementary finishes to be done after the plating.

Zinc Coating

Is this process done in the United States, and if so by whom? I’m not a zinc plater, but ‘Type II Clear’ seems self-contradictory. Zinc coating with colorless RoHS compliance passivation. Until a very few years ago chromate conversion coatings were based on hexavalent chromium, and deposited a thick film that was relatively easy to dye.


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. The answer is Yes. Type II chromates are more commonly used where greater corrosion resistance is required, e. The Standard default is gold for type II coatings unless otherwise specified. There are different passivation colors: Sorry, but if you need one particular look, you must go through the ugly process of maintaining sample boards with acceptable vs.

Some of today’s proprietary trivalent chromium coatings are very thin and consequently will not generate a highly saturated color though. Rest in peace, Ken. Also, I found out that the casting is painted after plating. Try using an acid zinc chloride bath and see if the casting covers.

ASTM B – 13 Standard Specification for Electrodeposited Coatings of Zinc on Iron and Steel

According to RoHS the homogeneous and non-homogeneous are defined in such manner that every one may understand that the layer is removable let’s see how. Ray Kremer Stellar Solutions, Inc. The end user must decide 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.

But if you are looking ast, something indisputably blue, as opposed to clear with a possible slightly bluish cast, astn probably requires dye.

Ken Vlach – Goleta, California. II says “colored chromate coatings” meeting 96 hours of salt spray, and III xstm “colorless chromate conversion coatings” meeting 12 hours of salt spray.

ASTM B – Standard Specification for Electrodeposited Coatings of Zinc on Iron and Steel

Please forgive any resultant repetition or failures of chronological order. All I need to know is what color the types are. Mark Hollenbeck alloys – Muskegon, Michigan A. I’ve seen this done less commonly on chromated zinc plating than on chromated aluminum.


This applies to all metals. So if I’m interpreting this correct, there is both a color difference and a salt spray difference. Decorative charastreistics The exterior visual determined according to last layer. We are getting poor coverage on the as-cast surface of some steel castings using a yellow Zinc chromate.

Trivalent chromates give paler and lighter finishes; some use metals, some use permanganates, some use dyes, in order to replicate the Hex finish. 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.

Put the chromate on light. III is colorless and not expected to hold up as long as the colored II.

He passed away May 14, Colorful RoHS compliance passivation gives corrosion resistance ability of hours according to ASTM B until asrm spots-also intended to parts used in a high corrosive environment —outdoor. It would be “bright, blue” — that is, shiny asstm metallic but with a bluish rather than a yellowish cast. Is there any colour difference OR is there any Salt spray difference? You can get the same finish only for blue and black hex chrome with tri substitutes, but not for yellow or olive as of yet.
