Conductivity and reliability of Electro-Plated Zinc Nickel



(-----) 2004

Hello,

We previously used a cold roll steel enclosure cover with powder coating finish in our products. There are punch holes without powder coating; finished use is for machanical mounting and grounding shield for EMC. Since the unfinished areas corrode and rust so easy, the metal fab house have suggested using ZnNi electro-plated galvanize steel with Chromate treatment. My questions are:

1) How long would ZnNI electro-plated galvanize steel prevent from corrode compare to CRS?
2) Does powder coating adhere to ZnNi electro-plated galvanize steel OK?
3) Would ZnNi electro-plated galvanize steel conduct? What is the conductivity charactreistic? better or worse compared to CRS?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Mr Truong,

There no issues that should prevent you from accepting the recommendations of your metal fab shop.

Zn Ni will last 15 years more than bare metal.

Powder coating will adhere to Zn Ni. It would help to have a light blue chromate over Zi Ni.

Yes Zi Ni will be conductive.
