Identify this finish from the picture

August 17, 2017

Q. I am sending you image of part and please suggest what types of plating or coating is there on material. Either it is having satin nickel, with electrophoretic lacquer or it is having PU Coating, or is it pearl chrome plating; base material of part is zamak.
Please suggest.

A. Hi cousin Ashok.

I suppose it's possible that some finishes are so well proven in the zipper industry, and others so thoroughly unworkable, that someone with broad experience may be able to instruct you what this is based on what is always done. But as a general rule, trying to determine what a finish is from its appearance is completely unworkable. Good luck.
