  • Zinc Plating Stainless?

    I looking to Zinc Plate some Stainless Bolts and Nuts. I would like to get the original Yellow Dichromate Finish, with the long term durability of Stainless. Has anybody tried this? I have about 80 Nuts and Bolts, and it does pay to take the original items to a plating service. Given there odd size and Yellow Dichromate Finish, new ones are too pricey. I though SS and plating would be a good combination, original look with long term durability of SS.

    Your input would be helpful.

    You'll need a nickel plating kit, with some Stainless Steel Activator crystals and a zinc plating kit with yellow chromate crystals.

    You plate with Stainless Steel Activator first, then zinc plate, then dip in the Yellow Chromate.

    Should work very well.
