Protection against corrosion of metals is well known as an important issue in numerous fields. In all cases, the improvement of durability of these metals has to be connected to the development of environmentally friendly processes. Sol–gel protective coatings have shown excellent chemical stability and enhanced corrosion resistance for zinc substrates. Further, the sol–gel method, used as technique of surface protection, showed the potential for the replacement of toxic pre-treatments. This paper highlights the recent developments and applications of silane based sol–gel coatings on zinc substrates. Then, the challenges for industrial transfer of the developed process are also discussed because this process presents a disadvantage for on-site use, which is the too time-consuming thermal treatment. So, the goal of this study was to determine the convenient experimental conditions to reduce the duration of heat treatment of the hybrid sol–gel layer, compatible with the severe industrial requirements, without reducing the protection against corrosion. To reach this objective, a correlation between the results of chemical analyses and the protection against corrosion efficiency was established.
