"Chrome plating on zamak 5"



2005

We are plating faucet parts that are made of zamak 5. So far we have worked with out much problem. But recently there's a tendency of the nickel tanks to get contaminated frequently. Anyone know of a good book about this issue?

Estimado Rafael :
Para procesar zamac , te recomiendo un CD de la AESF , que describe especificamente los tratamientos sobre zamac bastante bien .
Independientemente de ello , a mí me dá buenos resultados el sig. proceso :
1-Desengrase por inmersión (libre de NaOH): 10 min a 50 °C
2-Desengrase anódico : 10 a 30 seg. - 5 V - 50°C
3- doble enjuague en agua corriente circulante.
4- Activación ácida : a temp ambiente, se pueden usar dos alternativas : a)Alguna sal ácida fluorada 20 gr / litro durante 60 seg.
b) ácido sulfúrico al 10 % , 10 a 15 segundos .
5- doble enjuague en agua corriente circulante
6- Baño de cobre alcalino : A 50 °C - el 1° minuto a 1 Volt, y luego elevar a 2.5 volt , durante 10 a 15 min. las conc. de los componentes son : CNCu 40 - 50 gr/l ;CNNa libre de 10 a 12 gr/l (muy importante ) ; KOH entre 14 y 18 gr/l ( muy importante ). es aconsejable el uso de sal de rochelle y algun refinador de grano.
7 - seguir proceso de cobre acido , níquel y cromo std.

Espero que te sirva
Atentamente
