Whether you are seeking to enhance the abrasion/chemical resistance or aesthetic appearance of parts, our extensive plating capabilities will fulfill your custom finishing requirements and passes through a combination of preplating, plating, and post-plating.

If required, plating certification can be provided. We offer electroless plating, galvanized immersion, and spraying processes. Plated parts supplied by us fulfill the corrosion control, functional, and decorative finishing requirements of our customers. Production Materials’ custom plated components are available in diverse finishes such as black oxide, zinc, cadmium, and chrome.

Plating thickness is a minimum of 0.0001″.

PMI offers both barrel and rack capabilities. To ensure compliance with specific finish requirements, plated components can be tested for characteristics such as solderability, adhesion, and corrosion resistance.

Metals plated include:

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