Hexavalent Chromium-Free Coatings
ZinKlad Brake 240 – High
Performance Finish for Iron
Brake Castings
ZinKlad Brake 240 is a clear hexavalent chromium
and cobalt-free coating. It has been specifically
developed to meet the automotive requirements for
corrosion resistance on brake castings and assemblies.
The coating is fully compliant with both ELV and
REACH regulations.
ZinKlad Brake 240 is a ‘drop in’ process suitable for
most zinc electroplating lines. The special inorganic
topcoat is un-lubricated, making it compatible with
brake fluid. This topcoat also has the advantage of
drying without drip marks or staining and providing
protection even after post-plate deformation
When it comes to providing corrosion resistance with
an attractive silver appearance, ZinKlad Brake 240

ZinKlad Brake 240 Performance Data
ZinKlad Brake 240 combines an homogenous metallic zinc deposit of 8 microns
minimum thickness, with a high build cobalt-free passivate and clear topcoat. The
zinc deposit is applied from our Kenlevel boric acid-free zinc electroplating processes.
These are formulated to provide uniform, bright and ductile zinc deposits that rapidly
achieve minimum thickness for optimum coverage.
The zinc systems are completed with the application of TriPass ELV 7000 high build
trivalent passivate which imparts a silver color, whilst extending corrosion resistance
against the formation of white rust.
HydroKlad SI topcoat is then applied to provide
increased corrosion resistance, even after post-plate
deformation. As HydroKlad SI does not contain
polymers the resulting film has reduced droplets
when compared to other coatings.
