PLATING

Introduction

We provide Mil Spec rated plating and service customers in various markets and processes. Our plating is used for final finishing and process improvements:

Markets: Medical, Electronics, Automotive, Aerospace, Agricultural, Sporting Goods Processes: Injection Molding, Extrusion, Machining & Others

We have the ability to engineer our EN plating qualities to enhance particular qualities.

Environmentally Conscentious: We are proud to offer plating services that meet RoHS, ELV, and WEEE requirements.

Our specialized Electro-less Nickel plating provides excellent corrosion resistance, durable wear resistance, and lubricity characteristics. Our experience with masking and handling molds, dies, and other critical work pieces elevates our quality and controls where plating is applied. This coating can be applied over many different steel, aluminum, copper, and other materials.

Uniform Buildup

The advantages of our electro-less nickel over other plating methods include conformity and uniformity of the surfaces being plated. There is no excess build up in corners and crevices. There is no thinning of plating at edges. This is an ideal plating for hard to reach areas, polished and textured surfaces. It is also ideal for build up for dimensional modifications. The plating thickness can start at .0001” to .005” depending on the specific plating.

Repair-Ability

The Electro-less Nickel plating can be easily removed without detriment to the existing surface. After removal the repair (weld, texture, polish, etc.) can be made and the plating can be re-applied.

Improved Cycle Times

Many part manufacturing times can be improved with our coatings by virtue of reduced friction and resistance. Molding cycle times are reduced and improved part manufacturability can be achieved. In the plastic molding environment a part’s appearance challenged with scuffing or dragging (due to draft design limitations, deep texture, etc.) can be vastly improved.
