Zinc Tin Alloy Powder




I am looking for someone who can supply zinc and tin alloy metal powder, with a grain size of about 5 micron, that is suitable for mechanical plating onto steel. The alloy needs to be 75% zinc and 25% tin. Please note that I am not looking for zinc and tin powder that I can mix together, but powder that has been made from the zinc/tin alloy. If you cannot help with the powder supply, perhaps you can advise on how to make it myself.

Try Macdermid, who sell mechanical plating supplies or Plating Systems and Technologies [a finishing.com supporting advertiser] who do likewise.

Since the technique is not obvious, it would be quite sporting of someone to tell you how to make it. However, a good literature and patent search should provide more than enough information for a lifetime of work.
