Q. Is Delta MKS 9000 a Dacromet or Geomet coating?Anthony Heno

A. Hi Anthony. Sriram's answer still pertains. It is neither Dacromet nor Geomet, but a competitive product. It is a lamellar zinc dip-spin coating which is free of hexavalent Cr, but since it's not identical to Dacromet or Geomet, unfortunately only the specifier can decide whether it's equivalent enough for their purposes.
While this may sound like Sriram & I are ducking the question, consider a day-to-day example: is Coke 'equivalent' to Pepsi? To Diet Pepsi? To Diet Seven Up? To Orange Juice? There's really no answer except for what the customer decides they will accept.
