My recommendation for a local plating company - Dallas area

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to give a shout out for a local plating company that I just did some business with.

I had my OEM rotors for my Mercedes SLK55 AMG zinc plated and they did an awesome job. They only charged me $45.00

If you have anything that needs to be plated give them a call.

The OEM rotors come from the factory with a cold galvanizing spray coating on them which does not hold up all that well and eventually starts to rust through. Now they are fully protected

Here is the company info:

Gleco Plating
2220 Grisham Dr. Rowlett, TX 75088
Phone: 972.475.4300

Ask for Mike Ray, the general manager.

Here are some before and after photos:

It looks good but won't it affect the friction coefficient and thus the braking performance?

etyu,

Thanks!

To answer your question, no it will wear off of the braking surface after the first time you apply the brakes.

That is why a lot of people use zinc on rotors is because it is soft enough to wear off quickly but strong enough to protect the rest of the rotor from corrosion.
