Alongside our range of machining services, we also offer extra facilities such as chemical blacking. Chemical blacking may also be known as black oxide treatment. It is a surface treatment that is used on steel and stainless steel to create a durable and aesthetically pleasing black finish. Chemical blacking is a low cost treatment that is widely used in industries and applications such as automotive, cutting tools, fasteners and other types of engineering products.
We also offer anodising services. Anodising is an electrolytic passivation process that is used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer found on the surface of metal parts. Anodising is used to increase corrosion resistance and wear resistance. It also creates a surface that allows better adhesion of paint primers and glues.
