Hard Chrome Plating is used to increase wear, provide corrosion and oxidation protection, reduce the coefficient of friction, and assist in the release in various mold components.
Powder Coating is a dry finishing process, using finely ground particles of pigment and resin, electrostatically charged onto a part. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Aluminum is the most common and widely used metal to be anodized.
Passivation is a chemical process designed to increase the corrosion resistance of stainless steel parts. To passivate stainless steel parts, the parts are submerged in a nitric or citric acid bath.
