  • Nickel zinc-plated steel

    NiZn-plated steel.   Electroplating nickel and zinc creates corrosion resistance that is 4-7 times better than a galvanised coating at an equivalent plating thickness.

    It offers wide-ranging benefits which include consistent formability and better weldability than zinc-coated products.

    Cost-effective alternative to stainless steel

    NiZn-Cote® and NiZn-Cote® Plus are produced to extremely tight tolerances for repeatable processing. Other processing benefits include consistent formability and deep-drawing properties. NiZn-Cote® and NiZn-Cote® Plus also offer better weldability than zinc-coated products.

    Cost-effective and reliable

    Our nickel zinc (NiZn) plated steel is an alloy electroplating of nickel and zinc. It is a cost-effective alternative to stainless steel and provides improved corrosion resistance over straight galvanised. Our NiZn-plated products, NiZn-Cote® and NiZn-Cote® Plus, are manufactured under stringent controls for quality you can rely on. Both products are available in a choice of surface finish and substrate to meet your needs.

    Outstanding performance

    We developed NiZn-Cote® and NiZn-Cote® Plus to deliver outstanding performance features. Our optimised electroplating process ensures excellent corrosion resistance. Resistance levels are higher than those of a galvanised coating at equivalent plating thickness. NiZn-Cote® Plus is additionally coated with a polymer layer – helping you to reduce processing steps. Both products offer:

    • excellent paintability
    • consistent formability
    • deep drawing properties

    For added benefits, we can customise our products to meet your exact processing and end-product requirements.

    Main benefits of NiZn-Cote® and NiZn-Cote® Plus include:

    • end-products of consistent and reliable quality
    • improved end-product performance
    • trouble-free, repeatable processing
    • minimised waste
    • opportunities to reduce processing steps
    • opportunities for cost savings

    Substrate tailored to your demand

    Tata Steel Plating has proven expertise in the production of cold-rolled steel products and electroplating. We exercise stringent control of substrate and base metal properties. Our rolling, annealing and production capabilities allow us to combine the necessary substrate attributes with plating options for a product that will meet or exceed your expectations.

    Substrates include:

    • low carbon steel
    • *high-strength steel (including HSLA)
    • *stainless steel

    * Combined with plating, these substrates serve as an alternative to many stainless steels as well as high-performance copper-based alloys.  Please contact us for grade availability.
