Common problem

During the application of alkaline galvanizing additives, if the surface of the workpiece is rough and not bright, you should pay attention to these 4 points!

    In the production process of using alkaline galvanizing additives, sometimes the surface of the workpiece will appear rough and not bright, what is going on?

    Bigolly Technology made an analysis based on the field experience and the characteristics of the product's alkaline galvanizing additives BZ-515, if the galvanized layer is rough and not bright, pay attention to these 4 points:

    1. The temperature of alkali zinc plating solution is too high.If the temperature is too high, the deposition rate is too fast, and the performance of the additive is reduced, which will cause the surface of the workpiece to be rough and not bright.Therefore, we should control the temperature of the plating solution within the process range during the production process.

    2. The cathode current density is too large.Excessive current density can cause rough edges and tips of the workpiece.


    3. The zinc content in the bath is too high or the content of sodium hydroxide and alkaline galvanizing additives is too low.It is necessary to analyze the plating solution and adjust the content of zinc and sodium hydroxide in the plating solution; whether the content of alkaline galvanizing additives is low can be analyzed and adjusted by the Hull cell test.

    4. There are solid particles in the plating solution.If the upper coating of the workpiece is rough, there may be solid particles in the bath.It can be removed by filtration with zinc powder treatment.

    Therefore, we need to pay attention to these 4 points in the production process of using alkaline galvanizing additives, which can effectively prevent the coating of the workpiece from being rough and not bright, and reduce the occurrence of failures.If you are interested in alkaline galvanizing additives, please contact Bigolly customer service, you can get free samples and detailed technical information!
