Zinc thermal diffusion coating (TD) represents a newer, more technically advanced version of an older process called diffusion coating or Sherardizing, invented in the early 1900s by Sherard Cowper-Coles.
Mark Gore, CEO of Greenkote added, "Greenkote's thermal diffusion process offers exceptional corrosion protection and longer wear and it outperforms many other traditional coating processes such as zinc plating, hot dip, metal flake and sherardizing as well as PVD and CVD.
Sherardizing - so called after its British inventor Sherard Cowper Coles in 1900, is a method of producing a long term sacrificial protective Zinc-Iron alloy coating on iron and steel, therefore giving high protection against corrosion and abrasion.
