Zinc plating with zinc oxide




Dear sir I want to do zinc electroplating on steel. If I displace zinc cyanide to zinc oxide [affil links] , what happens within bath and deposit. Thanks, Hashemi

What happens is it doesn't work :-)

You may need to purchase a proprietary process from a supplier who offers non-cyanide alkaline zinc plating chemistry. For efficiency you may also need some new equipment including a "generation tank". Zinc oxide without proper additives and control will yield an unsatisfactory deposit.
