Friction effects of zinc dichromate plating


 

Can anyone help me locate the coefficients of friction for steel plated with zinc plus dichromate?

Thanks,

The coefficient of friction will depend on many things:

- The type of plating
- Which brand of chemistry is being used
- The conditions during application

You should ask your plating supplier this question, and your supplier should get help from their chemical supplier in answering your question. This can vary if your plater uses different chemistries. It can also vary for a chemistry depending on which plater.

If you have friction problems, your supplier may be able to change the chemicals around to resolve the problem.

If I zinc plate the brake discs on the kit car I am building (to prevent corrosion), what effect will that have on the performance of the brakes. ie. what is the coefficient of friction of zinc compared with regular cast iron discs.
