  10. 10. Why choose zinc nickel ? “The specific properties of zinc-nickel finishes of corrosion and abrasion resistance, conductivity and adjustable friction make these coatings successful in many applications”. • Extensively used in the automotive industry, zinc-nickel coatings are also used in aerospace • Exceptional corrosion resistance for relatively thin coatings • Hard coating, good for mechanical resistance properties • Suitable for electronic applications such as grounding screws • Galvanic compatibility with aluminium • Lubricated to modify friction properties
  11. 11. Heat resistance “The specific properties of zinc-nickel finishes of corrosion and abrasion resistance, conductivity and adjustable friction make these coatings successful in many applications”. • Typical requirements are: • 120 C for 24h • 150 C for 1 or 4h • 180 C for 96h • Tests on zinc-nickel coated and passivated bolts demonstrate: • Finish meets the specified neutral salt spray corrosion requirements of the automotive industry even after exposure at 300 C for 24h • In this test, parts treated at 300 C showed red spot corrosion after about 3000 h • All other parts showed no red corrosion after 6000 h
  12. 12. Mechanical resistance “The even coating thickness in combination with the abrasion resistance makes this coating a popular choice for fasteners with insert drive and thread forming screws where high forces are applied during assembly”. • Hardness of between 500 and 600 HVN is reported • Withstand mechanical damage • May happen during transport or in the field (sand abrasion) • Mechanical damage only minimally affects the corrosion performance of this coating • The abrasion resistance of the coating may also favour use in applications where particle contamination is a factor
