Zinc & Clear Passivate

ANTI-CORROSION TREATMENT FOR CR4 MILD STEEL PARTS

Zinc plating in general can be broken into two primary steps. The first step is to add the zinc plating, through the use of electrical current. The second step is to treat the plated metal with a chemical passivate which adds color. These solutions are referred to as chromates (hex chrome) or passivates (tri chrome). To create a clear finish, a clear passivate is used. These passivates leave the metal with a natural color. In other words, the metal will have the silver color of zinc, often also including slight iridescence which can range from blue to yellow to pink.

Advantages of Clear Zinc Plating

Zinc plating with clear passivation gives all the same advantages of any other zinc plating, particularly the addition of considerable corrosion resistance. It also offers some benefits in terms of strength and abrasion resistance.
