Paper Title:
Study of Optimum Conditions for Zinc Plating on Mild Steel
  Abstract

The effect of some process parameters on the weight of zinc deposited on mild steel in a typical electroplating process is reported. The study indicates that the weight of zinc deposited on mild steel during the process is affected by plating temperature, current density, plating bath pH and plating time. The study established that optimum deposition of zinc is achieved at plating temperature of 320C, plating bath pH of 4.4, current density 40mA/cm2 and plating time of 30 minutes. 8.7mg of zinc was deposited at optimum deposition conditions. The profile of the zinc deposited decreases after optimum deposition is attained.
