Dear Mr.Mansour,

Special formulated yellow passivations after zinc plating will allow you to obtain 200h salt spray test. Check it again with your supplier.

Best regards,

Since you are in the automotive industry, you should be aware that the hexavalent chromate coatings you are talking about are going to be banned very soon. You should be trying to handle this problem with a trivalent chromate, possibly with an additional topcoat. You should draw upon the technical expertise of your plating chemical suppliers to help you through this.

Sir,

Zinc -Cobalt alloy coating with an iridescent yellow passivation may be able to give 200 hrs salt spray corrosion resistance. Bath maintenance may require a little more attention than the conventional cyanide bath. You may check-up this with your chemical suppliers. This may also be a little more expensive.
