Zinc Coating for Magnets

Various methods can be used to cover neodymium magnets with zinc. Zinc coating has been used to safeguard neodymium magnets in the permanent magnet business since the 1980s, which is quite an extended period. Zinc-covering magnets are commonly found in electrical goods such as hard disks, cell phones, earbuds, etc.

Because zinc has a standard electrode potential of -0.76 V / SHE, it is frequently used as a substitute anode for substrates.

Because zinc has a smaller potential than hydrogen in watery liquids, electroplating zinc necessitates the inclusion of another substance.

Because of environmental worries, cyanide welding has been supplanted by other methods. Chlorides, sulfates, and zincates are used in bath formulas for soldering zinc on neodymium magnets. So far, zinc chloride pickling has been the most widely used method.

Zinc chloride coatings have a high current efficacy and a low discharge voltage. This implies that the zinc chloride covering process uses less energy than other galvanizing methods.

The primary salts in the zinc chloride coating solution mixture are KCl, ZnCl2, and H3BO3. Surfactants and bleaching chemicals are among the ingredients in the composition.

Surfactants alter the electrode potential and cathodic polarization, allowing the particle size of the zinc coating to be refined. Aromatic aldehydes and aromatic ketones are used as brightening agents to improve the luminosity and uniformity of the zinc coating.

Because zinc is biologically active, it is essential to passivate the zinc layer after plating. A thick, chemically changed sheet is produced when the zinc layer interacts with the passivator. Depending on the passivation effects, zinc covering can be classified as tinted or blue-white.

Because of the powerful cancer impact, the trivalent chromium technique has superseded the hexavalent chromium method.

After interacting with corrosive components in the air, the zinc covering of neodymium magnets will progressively create a passivation layer for colored zinc plating methods. The passivation film’s width and hue will vary over time.

A straightforward high-chromium passivation composition includes chromic anhydride, H2SO4, and HNO3. When chromic anhydride dissolves in water, it forms chromic acid, which has a refining impact due to its potent acidic property. It should be mentioned that the zinc coating tendency for neodymium magnets is chromium-free passivation.

The preceding material already covers the fundamentals of zinc covering for neodymium magnets. This is a critical covering coating for their quality and longevity.

As a bespoke neodymium magnet provider, we can provide a variety of finishing methods for you to choose from. You can always choose the one that best suits your needs and goals.
