Galvanizing

Restometal has the ability to galvanise in either blue/silver or yellow/gold colors. All preperations such as degreasing and derusting are also done in house.

Our galvanisation process is the same as what was used during production of old- and youngtimers from manufacturers such as Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, Jaguar, MG, Triumph, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Citroën, Fiat , Maserati, Ferrari, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, Opel, Buick, Pontiac, etc.

Parts are sorted and will either be put in a drum for small parts, or mounted to a rack for bigger parts.

If needed, (with either heavy rusting or old paint) parts will have thier paint stripped and will be sand blasted. Old chrome or zinc layers will be removed chemically.

The process exists of 16 baths. Products stay in these baths take anywhere between a couple of minutes to a couple of hours.

The process is as follows:

  • Elektrolytic degreasing
  • Rinsing twice
  • pickling/derusting
  • Rinsing twice
  • Galvanising
  • Rinsing twice
  • Activation
  • Rinsing twice
  • Chromate/passivate in either blue/silver or yellow/gold.
  • Rinsing twice
  • Drying in the oven
