We Offer Many Different Finishes

 To meet the needs of our customers, we provide a broad range of Louisville metal finishing services. Some of our most commonly used services include:

  • Copper Plating- Copper plating provides a finish that is smooth with excellent coverage. It’s often used as a heat treat mask and is prized for its ability to conduct electricity.
  • Cadmium Plating- Cadmium plating remains a popular choice due to its ability to resist corrosion. Plating an item with cadmium also improves its lubricity, solderability, and malleability.
  • Hard Chrome Plating- Hard chrome plating has a reputation for being extremely durable, resistant to corrosion, and visually appealing. This metal finish is often used on tooling, molds, hydraulic piston rods, gear shafts, airplane parts, and dies.
  • Zinc Plating- Zinc plating is known for being a cost-effective metal finishing option that offers superior rust protection. With its smooth texture, zinc plating also increases the lubricity of an item and reduces friction.
  • Sulfamate Nickel- Ideal for salvaging worn parts, this matte finish provides excellent ductility. It’s also used for its ability to protect against corrosion, abrasion, and high temperatures.

And More…

In addition to these metal finishes, we also offer white layer removal, nital etching, passivation, baking, and more.
