Electropolish (300 Series SS)

Overview Electropolishing is an electrochemical process that removes material from a metallic work piece. It is used to polish, passivate, and deburr metal parts and is often described as the reverse of electroplating. Application Electropolishing has many applications in the metal finishing industry because of its simplicity and it can be applied to objects of…

Electroless Nickel

Overview Electroless Nickel Plating is the deposition of a nickel-phosphorous alloy onto a metal substrate without the use of an electrical current. The electroless nickel plating process utilizes an autocatalytic chemical reaction to deposit a reliable, repeatable coating of uniform thickness. This uniformity of deposit eliminates the need for post-plate grinding. Electroless nickel demonstrates excellent…

Chromate Conversion

Overview Chemical conversion coatings sometimes referred to as chromate conversion, chem film, Iridite or Alodine refer to a process of applying a thin barrier coating on the substrate to passivate aluminum alloys to slow the formation of corrosion. It is gelatinous film that has self-healing properties and improves paint adhesion on aluminum alloys and die…
