Modern Plating Corporation Approved By GM for GMW4205 Trivalent Zinc Nickel Finish

Freeport, IL:   Modern Plating Corporation announced today that the company has been approved by General Motors as an applicator for the GMW4205 high corrosion resistant trivalent zinc nickel finish.
Modern’s zinc nickel finish virtually eliminates the recess fill, thread fill, stuck washers, and touch marks common with other finishes that meet the high performance requirements of the GMW4205 specification.  Parts processed to the GMW4205 specification are a uniform, semi-glossy black in color. Modern’s finish exceeds the GMW4205 performance specifications in salt spray testing which require no white corrosion at 48 hours, less than 10% white corrosion at 144 hours, and no red corrosion at 480 hours.  The finish is also free of hex chrome.
Modern uses chemistry from MacDermid, Inc. developer of the ZinKlad family of finishes, and this new finish is another in the line of ZinKlad finishes being offered by Modern.  Modern is now an approved applicator for ZinKlad 96/250 (trivalent zinc), ZinKlad 500 (trivalent zinc iron) and ZinKlad 1000 (trivalent zinc nickel). 
Modern Plating is a 72-year old company specializing in electroplating for the transportation and other major industries.  Superior Coatings & Finishes, llc, Elizabethtown, KY, is an affiliate of Modern Plating Corporation. Modern Plating Corp. also has a joint venture operation in Taiwan under the name Modern Plating – Asian Pacific.
