All about Electrogalvanization


I would like to know the chemicals used in electrogalvanisation, the proportion of each. The importance of voltage, the quantity that can be produced per kg of chemicals used.

Although the term 'electrogalvanization' isn't used much in the USA, it means zinc electroplating. The term is sometimes used for zinc plating applied to things that alternately could be hot dip galvanized like wire or sheet. Several books have been written on the subject, and there are about a half dozen completely different plating solutions (cyanide, alkaline non cyanide, chloride, sulphate, etc.), so it really isn't possible to answer a question like yours in a forum like this. Please start with our "must have" booklist. Thanks!
