ASTEC 3000 Zinc Nickel
Zinc Nickel is the high end corrosion protection finish of the electroplated coatings. Designed as a highly functional coating to offer superior levels of corrosion resistance in increasingly demanding environments.
As an electroplated coating the final product produces a sacrificial layer that will corrode preferentially to the steel substrate. This means that unlike barrier coats, such as paint, the coating can still offer protection following in-service damage.
Astec 3000 is not just about a product, it’s a whole process designed to ensure the end coating is a market benchmark for quality and performance. Formulated and perfected through more than 20 years of high volume production our Zinc Nickel process blends all our knowledge, experience, chemistry and equipment to provide a unique coating that meets the most demanding specifications.
