Avoid the Pitfalls of Corrosion

Steel and iron surfaces rust easily, even in mildly corrosive environments. Rust leaves ugly surface stains on parts and components. It also weakens structures and reduces mechanical performance.

Durable Parts Increase Customer Satisfaction

Ensure your parts live up to customer standards. Apply zinc plating for:
    • Rust Protection
    • Long-lasting finish
    • Bright jewel-like appearance
    • Increased solderability
Zinc plating has a lower corrosion rate than steel in most atmospheres, when in contact with water.

Extend the Life of Steel, Iron and Other Metals

Since zinc offers sacrificial protection to iron and steel substrates, it will corrode first in preference to metal substrates. This provides the added benefit of protecting steel that is exposed at cut or abraded areas.

Choose from the Full Range of Trivalent Chromate Conversion

Chromate finishes are the first line of defense against corrosive attack on plated coatings. The thin, protective film on chromate finishes makes coatings more durable and increases the overall value of metal coatings. KC Jones provides the full range of chromate conversion coatings.
