Zincates

The zincate aluminum pre-plating technique is perhaps the best known technique for preparing aluminum for the plating process by applying a zinc-rich film chemical conversion coating that is both durable and provides excellent adhesion.

Tricate Zincate

Accu-Labs 159 Zincate

Download Tech Data Sheet
Accu-Labs 159 zincate is a non-cyanide, liquid zincate process that deposits a fine-grained immersion zinc film on a variety of aluminum alloys that promotes adhesion of subsequent plate. As a zincate process that does not involve cyanide, this compound in particular, is suited to meet the increasingly strict pollution prevention requirements that are relevant across several industries. At Accu-Labs, we prioritize environmental compliance and our environmental support staff will provide the necessary documentation required by the local sanitary district, EPA, and other regulatory agencies for our zincate products, as well as any other compounds we supply.
