With conventional anodes, both alkaline and acid zinc plating ‎systems have some nuances that make ‎them less than ideal to ‎operate, and eventually reduce the plating processes’ ‎‎productivity. Decreased productivity, bath maintenance, and ‎potential quality issues all mean ‎elevated cost. These elevated ‎costs can be eliminated by using dedicated membrane solutions.‎

With conventional anodes, both alkaline and acid zinc plating ‎systems have some nuances that make them less than ideal to ‎operate, and eventually reduce the plating processes’ ‎productivity. While the productivity in alkaline zinc-nickel ‎processes decreases with use due to the formation of breakdown ‎products, acidic zinc-nickel electrolytes suffer from increased need ‎for maintenance of the zinc anodes and the electrolyte solution. ‎Decreased productivity, bath maintenance, and potential quality ‎issues all mean elevated cost. These elevated costs can be ‎eliminated by using dedicated membrane solutions which avoid ‎the stated issues and allow for continuous and consistent ‎production. We will explore how these systems work, and where ‎they can be used most efficiently in a plating operation.‎
