ELECTROLESS NICKEL
This process is excellent for use in applications that require uniform distribution throughout the entire part. It features excellent corrosion resistance, wearability, lubricity and soderability. Parts range from small electronic connectors to machine parts.

ZINC
This process is used in the vast majority of manufacturing where a low-cost corrosion resistant, decorative type finish is required. Parts range from nuts and bolts, metal stampings and computer components to machine parts used in military equipment. Zinc plating is capable of encompassing parts as small as nuts and bolts.

SULFAMATE NICKEL
This process is run without the addition of any brighteners or levelers. It is used primarily in applications where ductility, low stress and solderability are required. Parts range from washers to pins and eyelets used for glass to metal seals for electronic applications.

CHROMATE ON ALUMINUM
This process is accomplished through an emersion dip in a solution containing chromate acid which is used on aluminum parts for corrosion resistane. It is used on a wide variety of aluminum parts ranging from small stampings to larger cast and machine housings, as well as extrusions and fabricated chasis.

SILVER
This process is used primarily in electronic applications where good conductivity, bonding and solderability is required. It is used on small brass and copper contacts as well as fabricated aluminum housings for the electronics industry. It is also utilized for larger copper contacts and buss bars for electrical switches.

CADMIUM
This process is similar to and used for the same applications as zinc, except that it provides for a far superior corrosion resistance than zinc does and, due to its RF shielding effect and solderability, it is widely used for military and electronics applications. This service is offered on small lots of fasteners done by barrel plating. Our capability is for rack plating of parts.

COPPER
This process is widely used as an interface between the base metal and the final coating, usually being nickel or silver. It is also used at a thickness of 7/10th to 1 mil as a mass prior to heat treating. We offer this finish for both requirements. Parts include small barrel parts as well as rack parts. The copper has a dull finish.

TIN
Tin is a soft metal usually plated over brass or copper where some corrosion resistance along with lubricity and solderability are required. It is widely used in electronic applications where parts must be soldered together. Parts range from small stampings and screw machine parts to larger stampings and fabrications used in electronic automotive applications.

BRIGHT DIP
This process is used primarily on brass and copper to remove surface scale and oxidation leaving the part clean and uniformly bright in appearance with a minimal of tarnish resistance. Parts range from fasteners and stampings to machine housings and valve bodies.

PASSIVATION
This process is used on all types of stainless steel. It removes oil, grease and metal particles, leaving the part clean and resistant to oxidation.

WE ALSO OFFER DEGREASING AND BAKING FOR HYDROGEN EMBRITTLEMENT RELIEF AT OUR FACILITY.
