Our Alkozinc process is based on new generation chemicals and provides a very easy to use and control system to the shop floor operator. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to cyanide based alkaline zinc plating systems. Not only is the effluent treatment much simpler, the zinc electrodeposits are bright, lustrous and as ductile as those obtained from cyanide or chloride baths. Furthermore, the deposits can be passivated blue, yellow, olive green or black in the usual way or be treated with Cr (III) passivations. The Alkozinc process has all the advantages of an alkaline system like good throwing power and narrow thickness distribution over complex geometries.
