De-embrittlement for Zinc Plating

The de-embrittlement process (stress relieve) or heat treatment of the components which is performed after zinc electroplating (which can cause hydrogen embrittlement). The components are processed in an oven at a set temperature for a specified time to relieve the hydrogen and stress in the steel substrate.

All zinc electroplating done to international and national standards.
