"Non-conductive aluminum plating"



2000

Does Gold Zinc on aluminum provide a "non-conductive" surface? If no, what can I use for a non-conductive plate surface to aluminum?

No it won't, Al; zinc and gold chromate is conductive.

Unless the aluminum alloy you are using is not anodizable or an anodized surface will not meet your needs, the most obvious treatment would be to anodize the aluminum.

I just realized that my question contained a typo; I wanted to know if "Gold Anodize" provides a non-conductive surface? Can you answer now that I got the question right?

Thanks

Hi Al. Anodized surfaces are comprised of non-conducting aluminum oxide.
