ZinKlad 500 is a hexavalent chromium-free coating system that will meet today's industry demands for high performance black and silver coatings.

It combines a homogenous metallic zinc deposit of 8 microns minimum thickness, with a high build iridescent passivate and clear topcoat.

ZinKlad 500 consistently meets minimum performance demands for corrosion and torque modification.

ZinKlad 500 deposits are applied from our range of Enviralloy Fe zinc iron electroplating processes.

These are formulated to provide uniform, bright and ductile zinc deposits that rapidly achieve minimum thickness for optimum coverage.

ZinKlad 500 zinc iron deposits are completed with the application of a high build trivalent passivate followed by a specialist topcoat layer.

MacDermid TriPass ELV range of high build trivalent passivate films impart a black or silver color, depending on the finish required. The passivate also extends corrosion resistance against the formation of white rust.

HydroKlad, JS and Torque'n'Tension topcoats provide increased corrosion resistance and modify surface properties to ensure uniform torque and clamping characteristics.
