Harley-Davidson has approved Asterion’s Technibrite alkaline and acid zinc plating systems for its motorcycle powertrain components, meeting the company’s zinc plate and seal per ESPEC 805-050, and its zinc plate per ESPEC 805-051 specification.

The approved zinc plating systems include the use of Technibrite AZ 130 alkaline, non-cyanide zinc or the ZN 200 chloride acid zinc, followed by Technicoat ZnBl 360 trivalent passivate. Techniguard F 108 sealant is used to meet the ESPEC150 specification for Harley-Davidson.
