plating, anodizing, & finishing Q&As since 1989
high resistance & black finish on steel bolts
Are there any alternative finish replacing Dacromet PB153 or Zn-Iron w/ black chromate? We need to finish bolts(plain carbon steel) of 6-8 mm diameter and 3/4 to 2 inch long. The finish should bear black color and withstand 600 hr to red rust. We tried PB153, but ran into many problems. We are not sure if Zn-Fe w/ black chromate could be as well controlled as plain Zn plating(our current process) and applicable to bolts. I would appreciate your reply.Francis H. Hahn
