Case Studies

A major supplier to the auto and heavy truck industry experienced numerous plating issues on a critically important component that resulted in a high volume of returned parts. They called DeWayne’s.

This customer’s problem arose when a mission critical part was crimped after being zinc electroplated.  The crimping caused the plating to break and flake off, leaving the part susceptible to corrosion.  Our chemical process control managers worked closely with chemical suppliers to test numerous different processes, ultimately settling on a trivalent chromate and sealer. Our highly automated zinc electroplating lines allow us to maintain high levels of control over our chemical mixes.  By tweaking the chemistry and maintaining tight controls, we eliminated the flaking and increased salt spray protection from 96 hours to 400 hours.

Impact - Dramatically improved performance of critically important part.
