Electroless Nickel / Nickel

Satin to semi-bright silver in appearance, nickel is one of the most versatile surface-finishing processes available.



Bright silver to gray in color, cadmium is corrosion resistant with exceptional solderability, ductility, lubricity, and good anti-galling properties.



Silver in color, zinc is soft, ductile, and marginally solderable with decorative qualities.



Passivation is a process by which contaminated materials conductive to corrosion and/or tarnish are removed.



Anodizing forms an oxide film on the surface of the aluminum part. This imparts to the aluminum a hard corrosive and abrasion resistant coating.


Conversion Coating

This is a chemical treatment that converts the metal surface to a superficial layer containing a complex mixture of chromium compounds.
