[Healeys] Ikea coating

Perhaps zinc sprayed? I had my MG TD chassis zinc sprayed when I rebuilt it back in the 1970s

Subject: [Healeys] Ikea coating

Here's a tough one.
We have some steel racks purchased from Ikea.
These racks have an unusual, very tough aluminium colour coating on them that appears to be a type of plating. It isn't powder coating as it is very thin unlike paint.
I think it would be ideal for wire wheels but cannot seem to find out what it is.
Interestingly I noticed the same coating on some bicycle handlebars today. 
Does anyone have any idea what it is?
