Vrishali, at this time I do not feel you can obtain more than maybe 48 hrs. salt spray ( ASTM B117 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] ). No matter what thickness zinc.Bill Hemp

Dear Vrishali, SS hours can be increased only if you use water based lacquers available through GW or other suppliers. Alternatively think about alloy plating. regards.

Dear Vrishali, for enhancing SS life for Blue passivation,you can use trivalent chrome passivation with Top coat.Which will enhance your salt spray life upto 72 hrs.
