- Innovative zinc-nickel surface coating
The protective effect of all HCP-coating systems is corresponding at least to the well established hot galvanisation with hot dip metal coating.
To select the optimal surface coating for your demands, we attach great importance to the protective effect, the preservation of the functionality (e.g. mobility of the thread), market requirement and economic feasibility.
It is recommended that contact between the HCP finish and Stainless Steel is isolated to prevent bi-metal corrosion in accordance with EN 14713-1.
