Electrolytic metal bathing is a technique widely adopted in the industry to extend the durability of metals, allowing them to present more excellent resistance to corrosion and an improved aesthetic finish. Jegan has specialised in this area with its advanced zamak die casting facilities.
What does the electrolytic bath involve?
Electrolytic bathing focuses on depositing thin metal layers onto an object immersed in an electrolyte solution. The purpose is to achieve a metallic component with increased resistance to oxidation and improved aesthetic properties. This procedure uses high-purity chemical compounds, along with metals and salts.
At Jegan, a range of coatings are offered, including nickel plating, chrome plating, copper plating, zinc plating, brass plating, and electrolytic silver and gold, available in satin or gloss finishes. Notably, nickel plating is used in industry because it is corrosion-resistant, and Jegan frequently applies it to zamak manufacturing parts.
At Jegan, a range of coatings are offered, including nickel and chrome plating (matte or shiny) and different types of zinc plating. It is worth mentioning that nickel plating is used in industry due to its corrosion resistance and is frequently applied to zamak manufacturing parts in Jegan.
Specialisation in Electrolytic Finishes:
Jegan has an industrial warehouse dedicated explicitly to the electrolytic bath process, guaranteeing efficiency and quality in each operation.
The dimensions of the pieces to be processed do not represent an obstacle. Facilities are designed to handle small and large pieces, ensuring adequate treatment in all cases. In short, Jegan's electrolytic bath service provides a technical solution tailored to various industrial specifications.
We have 2 process lines:
- Frame line
- Bass drum line
Innovation and Sustainability in nickel-plated coating:
Modern industry requires high-precision services and sustainable and environmentally friendly operations. Jegan aligns itself with these practices, guaranteeing that the electrolytic bath process is carried out under strict regulations and environmental standards, being certified under the ISO 14001 environmental standard since 2014.
Nickel plating for zamak parts is essential to provide excellent resistance to corrosion, improve the aesthetic appearance and increase the durability of the components. In terms of sustainability, some industries can consider several innovations and improvements to make this process more environmentally friendly:
- Training and Awareness: Continuous staff training on best practices and sustainable procedures can lead to more effective implementation of these innovations.
- Recycling Systems and Reuse of Solutions: Developing recycling systems to recover and reuse the chemicals used in the nickel plating process can reduce resource consumption and waste.
- Use of More Efficient Catalysts: Researching and using more efficient catalysts can help improve the speed and quality of the nickel plating process while reducing resource and energy consumption.
- Wastewater Treatment Technologies: Advanced wastewater treatment technologies can reduce pollution and enable water reuse in other industrial processes.
- Alternative Materials: Researching and developing alternative materials or additives that are less toxic or more biodegradable can help reduce the environmental impact of the nickel plating process.
- Process Optimization: Implementing monitoring and control systems to optimise the nickel plating process can lead to a reduction in the use of resources and a decrease in waste generation.
The combination of these innovations and improvements can lead to the development of a more sustainable nickel plating process, which not only benefits the environment but can also result in cost savings and an improvement in the quality of the final product.
