Sun Offers Zinc-Nickel Plating for Corrosion Resistance
Complementing already available corrosion-resistant valves that have external stainless steel parts, Sun Hydraulics now offers zinc-nickel plating on a widening selection of cartridge valves.
Stainless is the choice for the best corrosion resistance. However, zinc-nickel offers better resistance than standard zinc, with standard zinc protecting to 24 hours in salt fog and zinc-nickel protecting to 1000 hours.
At a list cost of only $20 more than standard zinc for X controls and $30 more for L controls, these zinc-nickel valves are a competitive alternative for corrosion resistance. Machine designers, engineers, service technicians and owners may find zinc-nickel plating an ideal balance of price and performance for certain applications and industries including:
- Alternative energy: wind and solar
- Agricultural: fertilizing and spraying
