 Anodising is a process to electrolytically coat a metallic surface  with a protective or decorative oxide. 

 

Unlike most other finishes, anodising preserves the natural luster, texture, and beauty of the metal itself. The anodised coating is a hard, durable, will never peel, and, under normal conditions, will never wear through.

 

The Anodising process begins by immersing the work in a series of solutions where various operations are performed. The solutions are held in open top tanks and the work passes through each unit. The work usually consists of distinct items that are placed on special racks and carried through the process in batches. 

 

The racks move from one tank to the next. The work is rinsed thoroughly after each operation to avoid contamination and interference in the next solution.

Glass bead blasting utilises small spherical acrylic beads, which leave a peened, semi-polished, satin finish, on the metal surface. Primarily, it is used on Stainless Steel and Aluminium surfaces and castings, as it does not remove any metal. 

Stainless
  • A process designed to remove foreign metals from the surface of stainless and corrosion resistant steels by immersing a cleaned and desealed steel part in a solution of nitric acid and oxidizing salts.

  • This process dissolves exposed surface iron and produces a transparent film of corrosion-resistant chromium oxide.

  • Does not change the appearance of the base metal.

  • Type I Low Temperature Type 11 Moderate Temperature Type III High Temperature Type IV For Steels containing large amounts (0.15 % ) of sulfur or selenium. Type V Anodic - For high carbon martensitic Type VI Low Temperature.

Chromate

Chromate Conversion Coatings provide good levels of corrosion resistance combined with low electrical resistance. 

Frequently specified as a base coat prior to the application of paint or powder coating this chemical treatment is applied by dip .

Type I Hexchrome will range in color from light yellow to dark yellow, depending on the immersion time in the chromate bath.  Generally, the darker color coatings provide the best corrosion resistance.
