The visual appearance and the press formability of electrogalvanized steel sheets change based on the morphology of the deposited Zn. The morphology control of the deposited Zn becomes an important theme. In this paper, the effects of plating factors such as the crystal orientations of the steel substrate, electrolysis factors, the additions of a small amount of inorganic and organic compounds to the bath and Ni pre-coating on the morphology of deposited Zn were systematically investigated from both a crystallographic viewpoint on the epitaxy of the Zn/steel and electrochemical viewpoint on the overpotential for the Zn deposition.
