Zinc plating is one of the more versatile finishes. Here at Asheville Metal Finishing we offer a wide variety of Zinc finishes which can be used for corrosion resistance, aesthetics or as a paint base over the zinc. Zinc plating can be chromated different colors after plating to achieve different results for a product.
Clear or "bluebright" is often used as an inexpensive imitation for chrome plating.
Yellow can be used as is or as a paint base. Black chromate gives a very smooth shiny black finish for decorative purposes or as an excellent corrosion resistant finish.
Olive Drab is usually used for military applications to match camouflage. Zinc plating can also be dyed after plating for lot identification.
