THE NEW ZINCFAST XL ZINC PLATING
The Zincfast XL is a new bright-zinc
plating process totally Cyanide
Formulated to produce a bright Zinc deposit on Steel and
"Zincfast XL" is ideal for Motorcycle and Car Components and because
it operates at an electrolytic efficency of nearly 100%, it will not
interfere with the molecular structure of the Steel, therefore it is
suitable for all types of fasteners.
THE VALUE OF ZINC AS a RUST-PROOF FINISH FOR IRON AND STEEL HAS LONG BEEN
APPRECIATED. ZINC PLATING IS BEING USED ON AN INCREASING SCALE, PARTICULARLY
FOR COMPONENTS WHICH WOULD FORMERLY HAVE BEEN CADMIUM PLATED.
THE PROTECTION GIVEN TO THE STEEL IS NOT DUE TO AN ENVELOPE EFFECT"
ALONE, BY REASON OF THE ZINC FORMING A CONTINUOUS COATING OVER THE WHOLE
ARTICLE, BUT IS LARGELY DUE TO ITS BEHAVIOUR AS THE ANODE IN ANY
ELECTRO-CHEMICAL REACTION THAT MAY OCCUR, THE RESULT BEING THAT THE ZINC
CORRODES PREFERENTIALLY TO THE UNDERLYING METAL TO AVOID~ COMPLETE CORROSION OF
THE PROTECTIVE FILM THE ZINC CREATES A TENACIOUS OXIDE SKIN WHICH RESISTS ANY
FURTHER ATTACK. THE "PASSIVATING" PROCESS TOUGHENS THE OUTER LAYER AND
ENHANCES FURTHER THE RUST PROOF QUALITIES OF THE COATING, PROLONGING THE LIFE OF
THE BASIS METAL.
ZINC FAST IS A COMPLETE SYSTEM
It has made it possible for the small Operator to achieve
fully professional results without any previous experience in
electro-plating. "Zincfast XL" gives excellent value for money
and, most important, allows the user full Control of the operation.
How fast is "Zincfast XL"? A 10 MicrQn (UN) Average coating
achieved in less than 2Q minutes. PassivatiOn takes ;appx.30 secs.
The "WORKSHOP XL" Kit contains all the necessary chemicals for
12 ltrs.Of Plating Solution and 12 litres. of Passivating Solution.
The Degreasant, the Copper Wire for suspending the parts, the pH
papers and high Purity Anodes are all included in the Kit.
To electro-plate you will need a l2Volt battery, Plastic containers
for the Plating and Passivating tanks 'and l2Volt light bulbs for
regulating the Amperage as used with the Nickel Plating System.
