Zinc plating

Home / Zinc plating
Zinc plating is an extremely valuable and economic finish used to combat the corrosion of steel. A metal bond is created between the zinc and steel forming an iron rich alloy providing excellent corrosion resistance. Zinc plating is also an excellent primer for paint surfaces. Apex offers Bright Clear Zinc, Yellow Zinc and Black Zinc plating
