Passivation is a chemical treatment of stainless steel material. During the machining process, free iron can be worn off the cutting tool and then transferred onto the stainless steel. This can result in a thin coating of rust. It is imperative to passivate the stainless steel to prevent stainless steel from rusting. Passivation specifications are followed (QQ-P 35 C & ASTM A 967) and a certification of compliance can be sent to the customer when requested.
Certifies to QQ-P 35 C & ASTM A 967
Zinc is one of the most requested coatings when corrosion protection is needed at a low cost. Zinc plating improves electrical properties, increases temperature resistance, and reduces abrasion and wear. Both rack plating and barrel plating can be done.
Certifies to ASTME 633-98
Electrodeposited Tin Plating
Electrodeposited tin plating is excellent for solderability, corrossion protection, improves wearability and is conductive. We have extensive experience in plating honeycomb shieldings.

Electropolishing is a reverse plating application in a concentrated acid or alkaline solution. When applying electrical current, a thin film forms on the surface of the part and the ions infuse through the film. The end result in electropolish is cosmetic improving the visual to the stainless steel. A brighter and improved surface finish is the end result with the process.
