Staining/blemishes in electrogalvanizing step ladders





December 24, 2008

Dear Sir,

We are producing step ladders in Kazakhstan. And we are using electro galvanizing method to cover the products. We are using this system without problem since 2002. But we have a problem nowadays. There is some stains / blemishes on the step ladders. Stains are like smoke/mist. We tried all ways but unfortunately we couldn't solve it. We invited some specialists here but also they couldn't solve it.
I believe that you can show us real solution. What must we do to solve it. We are waiting your kindly mail.
My best regards

Dear Sayran, Please send more details. I can assume that the base metal is steel and you make zinc plating. Which kind of zinc: acid, alkaline cyanide free, alkaline cyanide, others? More details on pre-treatment and post-treatment (passivation, sealing). The more information the better diagnosis. Best regards

Hi,
Happy New Year to you as well,

Please ensure the alkaline cleaning is okay, since we don't see any alkaline soak or electrocleaning in your process sequence, may be if its huge ladder, manually one can brush with soak cleaner to ensure there is no oil , also check the Zinc metal content in your solution, if the solution contains any impurity you can give zinc dust treatment.
