The Superior Zinc Plated Finish
Zinc plated TUFFPLATE™ finish has 3 times the corrosion resistance of standard zinc plating, and 30% greater corrosion resistance when compared to powder coating. The TUFFPLATE™ finish starts with an extra thick layer of zinc. It then uses a trivalent chrome conversion layer for brightness and extra protection, and the last step is a high quality sealer to provide the final barrier to corrosion.
Results of laboratory tests using 5% neutral salt spray confirms our TUFFPLATE™ finish provides in excess of 500 hours against First Red Rust and in excess of 100 hours for First White Corrosion.
The TUFFPLATE™ finish process is standard on all D-L plated products and is RoHS compliant. For additional information, contact your D-L sales representative or Dutton-Lainson Company.
