How to get matte deposit from acid zinc bath
December 9, 2011
Does anybody have an idea how to make an even matte surface from a normal acid zinc plating production. Of course I can just turn off the brightener, but will then have problems with metal distribution etc. I'm thinking for instance of a special pickling bath or a special additive to chromate passivation or ...?
