WHY ZINC FLAKE?

Zinc Aluminium coatings is a combination of zinc and aluminium flakes which are infused together by an inorganic matrix. Zinc Al Flake coating technology can be a direct replacement of Electrolytic (Electroplating) and Galvanic (Hot Dip Galvanizing) coating finishes in respect of enhanced corrosion properties, Hydrogen Embrittlement free, longer coated product life and environmental friendly nature during its application processing.

Due to ability to perform well with coatings of minimal thickness, Zinc flake coating concept has become most widely used for screws and fasteners in the automotive industry. While corrosion control is the first objective, this coating also possesses design features enabling controlled and repeatable coefficients of friction, increased lubricity, improved conductivity, resistance to heat and other features, all of which impart extended life and improved performance to the coated part.

ZINC ALUMINIUM FLAKE (GEOMET) PROPERTIES:

  • It is water based therefore low HAP (Hazardous Air Pollution), Low VOC (Volatile Organic Content).
  • Chrome-free coating
  • Co-efficient of Friction control from 0.08 to 0.20
  • No Hydrogen Embrittlement
  • Dimensional accuracy
  • Silver and Black colour finishes
  • Zinc & Aluminium Flakes offer cathodic corrosion protection
  • Suitable for applications in Marine, Industrial, Humid, Coastal Environments.

ADVANTAGES OF ZINC FLAKE COATINGS (GEOMET):

  1. Environment-friendly – Chrome free, water based chemicals resulting under environmental regulations taken up by the Government of India and other western countries. GEOMET® is ELV,WEE and RoHS compliance
  2. Excellent corrosion resistance – Salt spray life (SST) 500-1500 hours as per requirement
  3. No Hydrogen Embrittlement – making it suitable for High Tensile Components.
  4. High heat resistance – properties are sustained upto about 300 degree celcius making it suitable for components used in heat generating areas like engines of automobiles.
  5. Excellent Adhesion over Zinc Phosphate, Zinc and Zinc alloy plating.
  6. Resistance to chemicals – Have good resistance against Acids, Alkalis, Cleaners, Oil, Gasoline
  7. High Corrosion Protection – Compared to electrolytically deposited zinc or zinc alloy coatings
  8. Threaded Components – No retapping of threaded components are required and sizes of threads can be maintained in Go-NoGo Gauge
  9. Thin Layer Thickness – From 8 – 15 μm
  10. Coverage of Coating – No uncoated surface/No black spots giving it a long rust proof life.     Dacromet, Dacromet Punjab, Dacromet Ludhiana, Dacromet India
