MacDermid receives Chrysler approval for 'ZinKlad 1000 B'


MacDermid's ‘ZinKlad 1000 B’ has been


exclusively selected for electroplated zinc-nickel coatings in Chrysler specification PS-12182


The PS-12182 specification names Torque ‘N’ Tension 12 for friction control


ZinKlad 1000 is based on an 8micron metallic zinc-nickel coating,with atrivalent chromium passivation and topcoat. Forfasteners the top- coat usually contains an integrated lubricant to optimise the coefficient of friction properties. It is available as either ablue /silver finish or black. The coating gives >1000 hours to first red corrosion.


This finish is designed for threaded fasteners requiring extended corrosion protection plus lubrication, such as self tapping screws, thread


forming screws for plastic and those with ISO metric screw threads; especially those used in grounding applications.


ZinKlad 1000 is also specified by leading automotive companies including Ford, GM, PSA, Renault and VW/Audi. The addition of these new ZinKlad finishes enables automotive manufacturers to specify even higher levels of performance.
