What's Zinc electroplating?

Zinc electroplating: also known as cold galvanizing, is the process of using electrolysis to form a uniform, dense, well-bonded metal or alloy deposit on the surface of a manufactured part.

Compared with other metals, zinc is a relatively inexpensive and easy to coat metal, is a low-value corrosion-resistant plating layer, is widely used to protect iron and steel parts, especially against atmospheric corrosion, and for decorative purposes. Plating techniques include bath (or rack) plating, barrel plating (for small parts), blue plating, automatic plating and continuous plating (for wire and strip).
