After the Shiny Gun Plating Process the Zippers will again go through cleaning tanks.

From there the zippers pass through one “Activator Tank” and two “Washing Tank”.

Chemical Tank where the chemicals are supplied. We can manually control the supply of the chemical from the control board. Using high pressure chemicals spraying system to prevent zipper concave point scratched and improve chemicals reaction effect to make more stable and bright color. Zippers are completely soaked in chemicals in the chemical tank, which improves reaction time and effect, saves chemicals cost and improves zipper quality.


Flap wheels system makes chemicals have more complete and faster reaction. The plated color is more stable & brighter, wash more clean and lower cost.

Then the metal zippers are sent to “Color Fixing Tank” which makes the color shinier and more beautiful. From there it flows through three “Washing Tanks” which removes the chemicals from the zipper very well.

some cleaning or washing processes. When it comes out, the zipper sent to an “Oven Case” so that the plated nickel color can be more long-lasting. Now the zippers are ready to be shipped.
