Zinc Nickel – The Cadmium Replacement | Knowledge Hub | …

Zinc nickel coatings work in almost an identical way to cadmium in that it provides a sacial coating to protect against corrosion and is applied via electroplating. Zinc is the sacial element within the coating, but on its own it is too active and corrodes too easily. This is why between 12 and 16% nickel is added in order to slow the ...

Cadmium Plating Alternatives - SERDP-ESTCP

Cadmium plating is used for two primary purposes: 1. To provide sacial corrosion protection to steel components. 2. To provide galvanic compatibility between electronegative materials such as Al and Mg, and more noble materials such as stainless steels. Cd plate is normally chromated with a typical hexavalent chromium conversion coating.

For protective coatings on gray iron castings, cadmium is considered indis- pensible by many authorities. Corrosion products of cadmium are less volumin0us than those of zinc and less likely to iTl'terfere wi th the func- tion of moving parts. Cadmium corrodes at a much slower rate than zinc in marine atmospheres.
