Anodizing is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. The process is called "anodizing" because the part to be treated forms the anode electrode of an electrical circuit.
Chemical conversion coatings are intended to prevent corrosion, improve adhesion of paint finish or other coatings, and for improved electrical and electronic applications where low resistance contacts are required.
Not as hard and durable as anodize coatings, painted aluminum surfaces provide varying levels of corrosion protection, from excellent to fair, but are more vulnerable to scratches and wear that can affect the paint's corrosion resistance properties.
Simply put, non-destructive testing (NDT) is a process that is used to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage. Because NDT does not permanently after the article being inspected, it is a highly- valuable technique that can save both money and time in product
At Technical Metal Finishing, we realize that it is a combination of both! Passivation is a process that removes "free iron" contamination left behind on a surface as a result of machining and fabricating processes.
At Technical Metal Finishing, we apply dry lube with a high degree of precision and accuracy in order to achieve your desired thickness. We can apply ultra thin coats as required.
