Choosing the right metal finish isn’t just a matter of color. It’s a complex andintricate process that affects the functionality and even lifespan of the metal.



Think about the Golden Gate Bridge,completed in 1937, the bridge’s finish has stood up to the salt-laden fog of the San Francisco Bay for 80 years. While the “International Orange” paint has become the bridge’s trademark, it’s not there for aesthetics. The finish is there to protect the bridge from corroding as a result of the salt in the air from the Bay. The original lead paint was replaced with an inorganic zinc silicate primer and vinyl topcoat to protect against advanced corrosion.


In producing sliding hardware that sees a variety of different applications and environments, we need to protect our slides from the elements just like that of the Golden Gate Bridge. That’s why we have incorporated slide finishes to accommodate the needs of every environment our slides will see.


A finish is a protective, chemical layer that helps a metallic surface resist corrosion. Aside from the stainless variety, steel is vulnerable to even light moisture. Thus, proper finishes can extend a drawer slide’s life by years.


Just what goes into a slide finish? Let’s find out.


Accuride offers four types of coated finishes for its carbon steel slide members:


  1. Zinc

  2. Black

  3. Electroplate

  4. White Electrocoat Weather-Resistant







Zinc is the most common of the three finishes: It uses a zinc base layer coated by clear or black chromate. The clear zinc coat, the standard finish, resists a moderate degree of corrosion. It’s best for indoor environments, like office and home cabinetry.


Black electroplate, often used, by comparison, offers eight times more corrosion-resistance as clear zinc and tends to be used on dark-colored cabinetry. White electrocoat offers, even more, corrosion resistance on kitchen fixtures and appliances—applications that are often white, to begin with. These colors help the slides blend intothe applications they’re used on. Our weather-resistant slides use a standard zinc finish with extra coating to protect the slide from the elements in outdoor applications.

相比之下,经常使用的黑色电镀层,能提供8倍于镀锌层的抗腐蚀性,并且倾向于在深色橱柜上使用。白色电泳拥有更强的耐腐蚀性,可用于厨房家具和电器– 首先通常是白色的外观。这些颜色有助于滑轨与其应用环境融为一体。我们的抗风化滑轨在标准镀锌的基础上增加额外的涂层,可以保护滑轨免受户外环境因素的影响。

You may be wondering where the “electro” come in. The electro part is from the role that positive and negative attraction plays when bonding the desired finish to the slide member. That powerful attraction gives the finish and slide surface a strong bond that leading to a tidy and resilient finish.


Additionally, there are corrosion-resistant aluminum and stainless steel slides, such as our ‘AL‘and ‘SS‘ drawer slide families. These types of slides offer the most resistance to corrosion. The ‘AL‘slide family consists of a slide with Aluminum race ways such as our, super heavy-duty AL4120 that boasts a load rating of up to 1,212 lbs.


From our stainless steel selection, slide SS0330 is ideal for applications subject to moisture or humidity such as refrigerators and freezers. In general, stainless steel includes anywhere from 10% to 30% chromium for anti corrosion. Accuride stainless steel slides are either austenitic or ferritic.


Austenitic steel is non-magnetic, highly formable, and has high corrosion resistance. Highly formable, austenitic steel is tough, optimalfor welding, and used for such applications as auto trim and industrial hardware.


Ferritic steel is composed of up to 27% chromium (and 0% nickel),and it’s considerably less corrosion-resistant than austenitic steel.


Each finish is tested in a salt spray (also known as a salt fog)chamber. As the name suggests, these chambers have slides exposed to salt spray. The more corrosion resistant a slide’s coating, the longer its exposure in the chamber.


A basic clear zinc-plated slide is exposed for 12 hours in the chamber with no sign of corrosion. By comparison, an electro-white slide is exposed for 500 hours with no sign of corrosion. Accuride tests its slides under the American Society for Testing and Materials’ (ASTM’s) standards.


Similar to the team that maintains the Golden Gate Bridge, we are constantly looking for new and improved ways to ensure our slides are the most resilient in the world.
