For our customers who require surface finishes for corrosion resistance or aesthetic appearance of parts, we offer these value added options through our numerous sources.

These options include electroless plating, galvanized immersion, painting, and spraying processes. Production Materials’ custom plated components are available in diverse finishes such as black oxide, zinc, nickel, and chrome. To ensure compliance with specific finish requirements, plated components can be tested for characteristics such as plating thickness, solderability, adhesion, and corrosion resistance. If required, plating certification can be provided.

Metals plated include:

  • Brass
  • Copper
  • Inconel®
  • Monel®
  • Steel Alloy
