Zinc plating is a self sacrificing finish, applied to steel to give corrosive resistance.
Is electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish.
Most common form of electroless coating is nickel plating, which is actually a nickel-phosphorus alloy.
Is often used in electronics, to provide a corrosion-resistant electrically conductive layer on copper, typically in electrical connectors and printed circuit boards.
Tin plating is an industrial process where metal objects are coated with a thin layer of tin.
A process by which the surface is modified by a stream of liquid carrying solid particles of abrasive energised by compressed air.
cleans by flow, thereby eliminating impact, resulting in a 'soft' finish with the water acting as a lubricant. Media impregnation is avoided and the life of the blast media is also extended
Barrel plating is an efficient and relatively low cost method of plating. Parts are placed inside a barrel that slowly rotates while it is immersed in the plating solution.

I used Lorlec when I was rebuilding my Harley Davidson they Aqua Blasted and cleaned then plated my frame and wheels, Fast friendly service and they took the time and care to make sure it was right...

Zinc plated coatings are usually passivated by immersing in
chromate solution to increase the resistance of the zinc to corrosion.
Is a heat treatment process which is carried out after electroplating where hydrogen embrittlement is likely to take place. De-embrittlement after plating is usually done in the region of 200 - 220 centigrade for 120 to 240 minutes.
Zinc Plating and Passivate is an enhancement to zinc plating. Passivating the zinc surface can increase the surface layer and gives extra corrosion resistance. Black passivate. This is a mainly a cosmetic finish for its colour.
We have very large processing facilities, and can accommodate items for zinc plating up to 6m long and weighing up to 5 tonnes.
Coatings are used on steel parts for corrosion resistance, lubricity,
The process of bonding an extremely thin layer of silver to a base metal; most commonly used are copper, brass, white metal,
