"Why do we have scratching on Zinc-Iron plating with black chromate?"
Need help with problem, tried everything but I am still getting scratching on the parts with zinc fe and black chromate with sealer; customer rejecting the scratching. How can I solve this problem or what is causing this issue

First question is do you get scratching of sealer or chromate? Second: are parts chromated and sealed in barrels, baskets, racks, etc.? Third how are parts dryed and at what temperature? Fourth: How are parts handled and shipped?Gene Packman

Try to increase Iron level in the bath to the highest level that is suggested from your supplier.
Analyze bath on carbonate, when it is over 80 gpl, than dilute the bath on half, or get rid of carbonate by cooling down the bath on 4-5°C. Carbonate (an also a lot of caustic) will pecipitate.
