Our Services

Adding strength, corrosion resistance and beauty to your parts.

Natural Anodising

The most common form of anodising is sulphuric acid anodising. An anodic film thickness of up to 30 microns can be produced, depending on the grade of alloy and end use of the components.

BS 1615 / BS EN 12373-1 2001
DEF Stan 03-25
MIL-A-8625 Type III
Film Thickness: 5-30 microns

Hard Anodising

Hard anodising is a high-tech, extreme engineering finish. It is extensively used in the aerospace and marine industry on components which are subject to extreme heat,abrasion and corrosive conditions.

DEF STAN 151-3 25-50µm
DEF 03-26 25-50µm
BS 5599 25-50µm
Film Thickness: Up to 75 microns

Colour Anodising

We are able to offer a range of anodising colours. Anodising colour can be affected by a number of variables: alloy type and temper, load time, etch time, tank temperature and coating thickness.

Black and Silver
Red
Green
Gold
Blue

Mechanical Polishing

Mechanical polishing is the smoothing of a surface using mechanical tools. Mechanical polishing is performed in steps with progressively finer abrasives until a smoothness is achieved.

Tin Colouring

Tin colouring is the process of depositing tin sulphate into anodic pores through a rectified electric process. Different amounts of tin sulphate, allow a range of colours from light champagne to dark black as well as many different shades of bronze. The results give excellent UV resistance giving this process excellent characteristics for architectural purposes.


Chromate Conversion

These coatings are mainly used to slow the effects of corrosion on aluminium, zinc, magnesium and their alloys.

A rapid, non-electrolytic, chromate conversion treatment.
Excellent corrosion protection with or without paint.
Excellent paint or powder coating adhesion.
