Alkaline Zinc-Iron Process for Barrel and Rack Plating Applications

PERFORMA 260 is a new stable, alkaline Zinc/Iron bath with high current efficiency. The layers of the alloys contain 0.4-0.8 % of Iron, can be post-treated easily and with all conventional passivates. PERFORMA 260 shows an outstanding metal distribution and high covering power.

The electrolyte is suited for rack and barrel and produces a very bright, stainless and ductile Zinc-Iron layer. Another advantage of PERFORMA 260 is its low cost, easy to use process, and easy waste water treatment.

Features & Benefits

  • Highly protective, bright, burn-free deposits, even at very high current densities
  • Extremely low stressed and blister free deposits
  • Operates with low levels of the complexing agents needed to regulate iron co-deposition
  • Excellent covering power and uniformity of plate distribution
  • Iron content is not affected by variations in bath temperature
  • High cathode efficiency often allows for increased load size in plating barrels and more heavily populated plating racks. As a result, production is increased.
  • Suitable for rack and barrel applications

Fields of application

  • Automotive industry
  • Building
  • Electrical equipment
  • Furniture
