What is MKS 720 COATING

A discussion started in 2007 but continuing through 2017


Q. We want to know what is MKS 720 coating. Is it equivalent to Dacromet 310 or Geomet 720?

A. MKS Stands for Micro layer Korosion Systeme - a brand of M/s Doerken MKS, manufacturers of DELTA MKS systems. It is neither Dacromet nor Geomet.

What is Delta MKS 9000 Coating

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

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.
