Metal finishing, also known as surface coating, refers to a series of processes that enhance the properties of a metal part. The goals can include improving appearance, durability, corrosion resistance, and other functional properties. Metal finishing processes include electroplating, anodising, passivation, and more. Most metallic parts will have gone through some sort of finishing process before a consumer comes into contact with them. These surface treatments are important to help components withstand environmental or mechanical factors, and increase longevity.
We can provide help for a huge range of problems. We’ve worked with a wide range of industries, from the automotive to the clean energy sector, and we’re constantly upgrading our processes.
