Zinc & Cadium Plating:
Electroplating, also known as Metal Plating or Metal Finishing is the method of applying a metallic coating to another material. This is done by putting a negative charge onto the object to be plated and immersing it into a solution which contains a salt of the metal to be deposited. The metallic ions of the salt carry a positive charge and are attracted to the part. When they reach it, the negatively charged part allows the electrons to "reduce" the positively charged ions to metallic form and create the plating.

Plating can be used for different reasons and the process provides a hard shell for the material or object being plated or finished. Most items are plated to avoid corrosion or create abrasion resistance, while other items are plated for a cosmetic finish, or to change the properties of the part (i.e. Conductivity, Heat Dissipation, or Structural Integrity). For detailed process information, please see our Specifications Page.

Aluminum Anodizing:
Anodizing is a metal finishing process used to give aluminum a stronger surface which is very hard and exceptionally wear-resistant. It is essentially a controlled procedure of using an acid solution with electricity to produce a uniform and dense layer on the part. This is done by covering the surface of the part both with a penetration and a build-up of aluminum oxide. Unlike paint, which can flake off if not applied properly, anodized finishes are actually formed from the original material. The aluminum can also be dyed at the end of the anodizing process to get a cosmetic, colored finish.

Type II Sulfuric Acid with Colored Finish
(Black, Blue, Gold, Red, Orange, Green) or your choice
$100

Hard Anodizing:
Is similar to anodizing, yet involves deeper penetration into the aluminum to form a
much harder layer. It is done by cooling the acid solution to near the freezing point of
water and using much more electrical current. The hard anodizing process is used for
applications requiring the light weight of aluminum combined with a strength usually associated with heavier materials. This makes the process a very good fit for aerospace and other engineered processes.

Electroless Nickel Plating:
Electroless plating is a process that utilizes an auto-catalytic chemical reaction instead of electricity to deposit a metal finish onto a part. This type of plating process gives uniform thickness all over the part’s shape and size without the variances that occur in normal electrolytic plating. This offers a distinct advantage for engineered processes that require very exact tolerances, as well as superior corrosion resistance to electroplated nickel or hard chrome.

Extra Quality Assurance Services:

Masking:
Masking services are utilized to provide selective plating on a part instead of one uniform coating. This can mean having plating only in certain exact areas or having multiple metal finishing processes applied to the same part. We use a combination of various paints, tapes, materials and coverings in our Masking Clean Room to meet your exact requirements, including Research and Development.
