We offer the following finishing processes:
Industrial Part Polishing
After the plating process, further polishing may be used to enhance appearance, prevent corrosion, and prevent contamination, or before the plating process to remove oxidation.
· Roll Polishing
· Feed-through polishing
· Capacity for polishing parts up to 18” in diameter and up to 12’ in length
Industrial Part Blasting/Wheelabrating
This process prepares parts for plating by removing paint, coatings, and rust or other oxides.
· Manual blasting
· Tumble blasting
· Media available: steel shot, glass bead, or aluminum oxide
Industrial Parts Baking
Baking is a thermal process that removes hydrogen from metal that is introduced during the electroplating process. This results in a stronger plating that is more resistant to fractures.
· Relieves potential for hydrogen embrittlement
· Achieves additional hardness
· Improves adhesion of electroless nickel deposits
