Soldering and welding
Zinc alloys can be joined, as by soldering, and welding. But technologically these processes are primarily used to eliminate surface defects, as soldered and welded joints have low strength. Lead-tin solders, it is possible to seal only Nickel plated parts with flux — acidified zinc chloride. Good results has solder, which contains 17.5% of Zn + 82.5% of Cd. In this embodiment, does not require flux. Carry out welding in a reducing flame, using additives from the same alloy as welded products.
They are widely used for casting carburetor housings in the automotive industry: parts hydrocortisol, speedometers, pumps, radiator grilles, as well as in other production sectors and household equipment for moulded parts instruments, valves, etc., These alloys cannot be applied in low and high temperatures, because at t°100°C and their hardness is reduced by 40%, strength 30% and at a temperature below 0 °C, the alloys become very brittle.
Such coatings are applied to the products not only to increase the resistance to corrosion but also for decorative purposes. Depending on the operating conditions use protective 2 — and 3-layered coating of different thickness. As alternative coatings generally used Nickel, chromium and copper.
