Zinc plating is the most widely used method of metal surface finishing. A zinc coating is electrodeposited on the surface of a steel component to ensure defined corrosion resistance and final appearance. Usually the thickness of the electrodeposited zinc coating is between 5-12 μm, but a different thickness can be used if required by the customer. During the coating process, the zinc-coated surface is subsequently coated with a passivating or chromate film and a sealing coat. These processes markedly increase the resistance of the coating to corrosion and also change its visual appearance. Galvanising is carried out in compliance with the Czech technical standard ČSN EN ISO 2081.
