Zinc plating Si content



(-----) 2006

If in the steel, as a component we can find / see 0.40313 % Si - is it really significant ? can it create problems with zinc layer adhesion ?. ( of course if plating process is perfect ) can this level of Si be a problem ? If yes - what kind of mechanism cause it ?

Hello Jacek. Please tell us your own situation rather than posing a hypothetical that can probably never be answered exhaustively. Thanks.

Steels that contain more that 0.05% Si are more difficult to galvanize and immersion time has to be controlled to avoid excessive zinc thickness. Removal speed must be low to allow drainage.

Dear ,
I know this problem very well because I tried it to solve at one of my customer, and I had success. You shall prepare a bath that contains 7% acid salt. Before plating bath you shall immerse the parts into this acid salt for 1-4 min, than rinse and plate with zinc. you will see everything is wonderful. This acid salt must be include sodium fluoride, sodium bisulfate to take Si. You can find these in one product from electroplating chemicals suppliers.
