In this way, zinc is usually applied to a metal, such as iron in order to protect the corrosion. Galvanic action can galvanizing objects made of steel, alloy steel, brass, copper and copper alloys.Cases are galvanizing to be carriers or drums, depending on the size and description technical requirements.Merchandise cinco larger dimensions in line with hangers while small objects in cinco line with the drums. Zinc coating thickness is determined by customer request.

Galvanized elements are aditionaly protected by the passivation process that is chroming in order to increase the corrosion resistance of zinc as well as in order to achieve a decorative feature.

The purpose of semi gloss nickel is primarily as the basis for glossy nickel or for some items that should have a matt surface for its further application in industry because of its strength but also resistance to higher temperatures.

Shiny nickel coatings are characterized by a high polish and perfect alignment surface already at low coating thickness , so it is not necessary subsequent polishing of the case. Because of these properties shiny nickel is an excellent coating for decorative purposes and the basis for chromium in the process of decorative chrome.
