What is Black Zinc Plating

Black zinc plating is used to provide corrosion protection and anti-galling properties to parts in high wear, high temperature, and corrosive environments.  It is achieved by applying zinc plating followed by black chromate conversion plating. The result is a uniform, durable coating providing corrosion and wear resistance as well as anti-galling properties. The surface color can range from matte to different iridescent hues. Black zinc plating is thicker than other plating methods, which may affect the dimensions of tight fitting parts.
