ZINC PRO ZN/NI 300 PROCESS zinc-nickel alkaline system is, ammonia-free and cyanide-free process specifically designed for rack plating. This low metal alloy bath produces a deposit with superior corrosion protection properties. Our unique alkaline process produces a nickel alloy of 10-15 % with excellent throwing power and uniform alloy deposition across a wide range of current densities. In addition, ZINC PRO ZN/NI 300 PROCESS offers the unique advantage of accepting trivalent clear and superior black (non-silver) trivalent chromate coatings.
To optimize the ZN NI 300 Process, the user must have access to X-ray fluorescence to check thickness and percent of nickel in the plated deposit. AA (Atomic Absorption) is required to determine the amount of nickel in the solution.
