Zinc plating is a recent undertake of all the leading electroplating companies. It finds its application in almost every field in India. Zinc plating has also been called as Galvanization. It acts as a fine barrier. The barrier prevents further oxidation of the base substrate. Zinc oxide formed on the plated surface as a thin white powdery substance behaves as the primary barrier to prevent further oxidation.The most common type of galvanization employed is hot-dip galvanized. Another technique is Non-Cyanide Zinc plating.Because the rain has witnessed a steady increase in the acid content in the rain, the galvanized coat eventually gets eroded and disintegrates. This results in corrosion. The pros seem to have made up for the cons, and plating continues its march on a global scale.
