Edition 11/2018



Appealing colour scheme with a bright semi-gloss

surface finish – comparable to Stainless Steel


Significantly reduced tendency to corrosion by contact

with other metals (such as Aluminium and Stainless Steel)


Improved abrasion resistance due to the ductility /

plastic deformability of the coating


Little to no risk of triggering allergies – nickel release is

down to only a fraction of the statutory limits relating to

objects which come into direct and prolonged contact with

the skin (independent results of the reference test method

according DIN EN 1811 are available on request)


Good paint adhesion properties


Resistance against all commonly used hydraulic media

STAUFF Zinc/Nickel Coating







At least 1200 hours resistance to red rust /

base metal corrosion under practical conditions in the

salt-spray chamber according to DIN EN ISO 9227


White rust occurs only by way of a slight grey haze


Surpassing the requirements of the corrosion

protection class K5 as defined by the VDMA, the

German Engineering Association (360 hours resistance

to white rust / 720 hours resistance to red rust)


Free of hexavalent chrome Cr(VI)


ELV compliant according to 2000/53/EC

(End of Life Vehicles Directive)


REACH compliant according to 1907/2006/EC

(Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and

Restriction of Chemicals)


RoHS compliant according to 2002/95/EC

(Restrictions of the Use of Hazardous Substances)

With at least 1200 hours resistance against red rust,

the STAUFF Zinc/Nickel surface coating offers excellent

surface protection – even after transport, handling and

assembly. This was confirmed by testing in the salt-spray

chamber according to DIN EN ISO 9227.

Users across all industries and applications benefit from

sophisticated technology, which has been developed for

and used by the very demanding automotive industry for

many years now and that is already the proven standard

for a large proportion of STAUFF components since 2007.
