The article focuses on the development of Dacrotized Coatings film through the application of various processes such as degreasing, coating and cooling. It describes the anti-corrosive features of the Dacrotized Coatings film which composed of zinc and chromate. It explains the advantages of such coating film including its resistance to bimetallic corrosion, absence of hydrogen embrittlement and weatherability. Also enumerated are various metals that can be coated with such product.
