Aluminum Anodize Type II is an electrolytic process that transforms the surface of aluminum into an aluminum oxide coating. The product becomes more durable, improving corrosion and abrasion resistance. Due to the porous nature of the oxide coating, the material now becomes a blank canvas where it is possible to dye it in a variety of different colors, or it may also be silkscreened and imprinted with graphics, as required.
Anodize Type III (hard coat) is an electro-chemical process that transforms the surface of the metal into an aluminum oxide coating. Amongst the benefits of Type III Anodizing is superb abrasion and wear resistance, and excellent dielectric properties.
Bright Dip or Chemical Polishing is a pre-treatment used to enhance the sheen of aluminum. Anodizing the product after bright dipping will protect the metal against corrosion and preserve the luster of the metal.
Passivation is an immersion process where the free iron is chemically removed from the surface of stainless steel or various other alloys. The removal of superficial iron is performed by chemical dissolution. It removes the surface contaminant without affecting the stainless steel.
With a renewed and upgraded paint shop, we have three paint booths and two ovens and are well equipped to handle a variety of regular and special needs for either liquid paint or powder.
Chemical film coating, also referred to as Chem Film applies a chromate conversion coating on aluminum, producing a finish which protects from corrosion, conducts electricity and allows for good paint adhesion.
A Dry Film lubricant is used to prevent galling and seizure of metals. It is a modified paint where the pigment has been substituted or exchanged for a powdered lubricant such as graphite or moly disulfide.
As a key step in the preparation of parts for assembly, plating, anodizing, painting or coating, Glass Bead Blasting is a useful method of cleaning to remove all foreign matter from metal such as scale, corrosion, paint, carbon and epoxy etc., without chemical stripping.
SYMCOAT HT500 is a proprietary process used for mold release applications. It can be applied to molds made from different metals including aluminum, steel and stainless steel. It is designed to withstand temperatures up to 750ºF intermittently or it can be used continuously at temperatures up to 500ºF.
SYMCOAT HCT is a proprietary process which meets the requirements of MIL-A-63576. During the process, an aluminum oxide coating is impregnated with PTFE to increase the wear and corrosion resistance, hardness and lubricity of anodized aluminum. It transforms the surface of aluminum into a ceramic type of material, which cannot be scratched or nicked by ordinary means.
TCP-HF was developed and patented by the Department of Defense, US Navy. It is a trivalent chromate based coating aimed at replacing Hexavalent Chromates, and outperforms all other trivalent products tested.
Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided.
