Friction Controlled Top-Coat for Electrodeposited Zinck-Nickel Coatings
FINIGARD 112 is a specially formulated organo-mineral liquid concentrate, used to impart increased corrosion protection and torque tension modification to parts processed with COVENTYA FINIDIP or LANTHANE conversion coatings.
Developed to meet the demands of the automotive industry, FINIGARD 112 protects zinc nickel (12-15%) finishes against corrosion in a variety of environments. When properly applied, it allows for coefficient of friction control to 0.12 +/- 0.03 (DIN 946).
The process is suitable for bulk electroplating applications and can be used in conjunction with hexavalent chromates or trivalent passivates.
FINIGARD 112 contains the latest generation friction modifiers that enable steady coefficient of friction values meeting the requirements of ISO 16047, MBN 10544, VW 01131 or STD 4419.

This process belongs toFINIGARD LINE
The FINIGARD line from COVENTYA is a comprehensive collection of products designed to enhance corrosion resistance and control coefficient of friction for some of the most challenging zinc and zinc alloy fastener applications in the world.
FINIGARD products are mineral and organo-mineral topcoats with highly active and permeable layers that maintain proper water content in the critical passivated or chromated films. This maintains the self-healing properties and enhances corrosion resistance, even in difficult environments.
Products from FINIGARD line can be applied on clear, black and yellow films over both zinc and zinc alloy and deliver the desired results consistently.
All FINIGARDs are free from Cr (VI) and any hazardous compound.
