Versatile and Efficient Alkaline Zinc-Nickel (12 – 15%) Process

PERFORMA 285 process is a reliable, production proven technology for depositing 12-15% wt Nickel, Zinc/Nickel alloy coatings from an alkaline electrolyte.
This addition agent system offers exceptionally high performance and is easy to use in production. What’s more, it provides exceptional corrosion protection, even after thermal shock at 120° C (250° F) for 24 hours.

Deposits obtained with PERFORMA 285 are uniformly bright and readily accept trivalent passivates (clear, black) as well as hexavalent Chromate conversion coatings (clear, yellow and black).
The process is easy to use in production and offers higher cathode efficiency than competitive processes. This translates as reduced plating time and increased production.
