Zinc electrodeposits are widely used to protect iron and steel from corrosion which are relatively inexpensive. Zinc coatings are nomlally ohtained from chloride and nOD-cyanide alkaline baths. The environmental corrosion along with the electrolytes sensitivity towards metallic impurities limit the use of chloride electrolyte. The use of additive, less cathode efficiency and the emuent treatment do not permit the use of non-cyanide zinc plating baths to a greater extent. Hence, the need for the search for a better zinc plating electrolyte is necessary. In this paper the authors present the details of zinc plating from an acetate based electrolyte and the result of Hull Cell studies are presented in thi~ paper.
