    We have an inquiry of self drilling screws that require zinc nickel plating 600hrs SST, but two factories quoted us nickel plating plus clear Ruspert top coat instead. Can nickel+clear Ruspert acheive equal performance as zinc nickel? and which one is cheaper?

    I don’t know if it’s possible to achieve 600hrs with nickel+Ruspert top coat, but in our own SST test nickel Ruspert begin to rust at 150 hrs…

    In the bigger Shanghai area, zinc nickel is 9000~10000 RMB per ton (1320~1467 USD per ton). Nickel+Ruspert clear coat is about 50% cheaper.

    Last year we tried zinc plating with clear ruspert top coat, and achieved 500 hrs. Several of these even reached 600 hrs. So there is really no need to opt for the more expensive nickel+ruspert.

    My customer finally decided to try ZP+ruspert.

    Zinc-Nickel plating is extremely expensive! There are better alternatives.

    Just use silver Ruspert, simply better and more cost effective.
