   Refinishing / Surface Treatment       
   Your choices are...         
   Abrasive / Blasting       Abrasive blasting services removes all visible rust, mill scale, paint and contaminants by the use of power spraying or tumble chamber leaving the metal uniformly white or gray in appearance. 
   Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM)       In the abrasive flow machining (AFM) process, a mixture of abrasive grain in a high viscosity carrier media is passed through the ID or internal openings of the part. AFM processes are used to deburr, polish and generate controlled radius geometry in components.  Orbital AFM processes are used for external finishing and geometry control. MicroAFM processes are used to radius, deburr and improve the surface finish of orifices in nozzles, fuel injectors, spray tips or other parts with very small or micro-sized holes. 
   Anodizing       Anodizing is a process for finishing aluminum alloys that employs electrolytic oxidation of the aluminum surface to produce a protective oxide coating. The anodic coating consists of hydrated aluminum oxide. It is considered resistant to corrosion and abrasion. Conventional coatings are 0.1 to 1.0 mil thick and are mostly transparent, but may be colored.  Anodizing preserves the natural luster, and texture of the metal itself. An anodized coating is hard, durable, will never peel, and, under normal conditions, will never wear through.  This category includes hard coat anodizing. 
   Buffing / Polishing       Polishing, buffing, and belting processes are metal smoothing operations that change the surface appearance of the metal. These operations can be for aesthetic and/or functional purposes. 
   Chemically Accelerated / Isotropic (ISF)       Supplier has chemically accelerated or isotropic superfinishing machines. ISF machines are designed to utilize chemicals to accelerate the material removal or finishing process.  Isotropic superfinishing and electrochemical grinding are examples of chemically accelerated processes. 
   Corona Treatment       Corona treatments are applied to enhance bonding between a surface and polymer coatings or adhesives. 
   Deburring / Deflashing       Deburring or radiusing processes round sharp edges or corners. Deflashing processes remove flash or parting lines from forging, casting or molding operations. 
   Electropolishing       Electropolishing is often referred to as a "reverse plating" process.   Electrochemical in nature, electropolishing uses a combination of rectified current and a blended chemical electrolyte bath to remove flaws from the surface of a metal part. The resultant surface is clean and bright.  This feature helped coin the name:  Electropolishing. 
   Honing / Superfinishing       Honing and super finishing are precision finishing process for generation of very flat, smooth or low Ra surface finishes.  Honing and superfinishing can maintain much greater control over geometry or flatness compared to handheld buffers, offhand polishers and tumblers or mass finishing machines. 
   Mass Finishing (Tumbling / Vibratory)       Mass finishing processes are methods for bulk processing of parts. Tumbler, disc, drum or vibratory finishing equipment is used with abrasive media and compounds. The movement of the media and compounds against the parts imparts the desired surface finish. 
   Mirror Finishing       Supplier has the capability to provide surface with a mirror finish. 
   Oxygen Cleaning       Oxygen cleaning removes combustible oils, greases or other materials that could cause an accidental fire or explosion when in contact with oxygen.  Oxygen cleaning may also involve the removal of excess rust.  Oxygen cleaning is performed on factories with furnaces, autoclaves, aerospace facilities, refineries, pressure gauges, pressure transmitters, regulators, fittings, thermowells, gold mines, hospitals, tubing, pipe, hoses, filters, valves and other assemblies and plants. 
   Passivation       Passivation removes "free iron" contamination left behind on the surface of stainless steel during machining and fabricating. These contaminants may drive premature corrosion and ultimately result in deterioration of the component if not removed. The passivation process also facilitates the formation of a thin, transparent oxide film that protects the stainless steel from corrosion. 
   Peening       In the shot peening process, smooth glass beads or metal shot are blasted at a surface.  They impart compressive residual surface stress, which removes residual tensile surface stresses.  Shot peening improves fatigue strength or performance under high number of load cycles. Shafts or other components exposed to high number of load cycles often require parts or materials with higher fatigue strength. 
   Pickling / Chemical Deburring       Pickling and chemical deburring processes use etchants, acids, acid pickles, to etch or chemically remove a layer of surface material or sharp edges. 
   Sanding / Grinding       Sanding and grinding processes area used for rough to fine surface finishing operations.   Abrasive discs, belts or grinding wheels are used to remove surface irregularities, clean and/or produce the desired surface finish. 
   Other       Other unlisted or unspecified forms of surface treatment. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Your choices are...         
   Abrasives / Superabrasives       Supplier has the capability to coat a layer of abrasives or superabrasive onto a substrate.  Resin and metal bonds (braze, electroplate or sinter) are used to coat a surface with an abrasive layer. 
   Adhesive / PSA       Process capable of coating a surface with a layer of adhesive or pressure sensitive adhesive. 
   Black Oxide       Black oxide coatings or finishes are a type of chemical or conversion coating. Black oxide coatings are formed through controlled oxidation of the base metal.  The thin, dense oxide film retards corrosion and provides a suitable pretreatment or base layer for subsequent organic coatings (paint, varnish, oil or wax). 
   Ceramic Coating       Ceramic coatings exhibit excellent resistance to wear, heat, and aqueous corrosion. In addition, the coatings are an excellent electrical insulator. 
   Chemical Finish / Conversion       A coating produced by a chemical or electrochemical treatment of the metal surface.  The coatings provide corrosion resistance and provide a surface for better adhesion of primers and paints.  These are not intended to be decorative coatings. Chemical finishes include black oxide and phosphate coating. 
   Cladding       Cladding is a process where another type of material is metallurgically bonded to a base metal usually through a rolling or high pressure process. Usually the base metal is less costly, but less corrosion or wear resistant.  Stainless steel clad to carbon steel would be an example of a clad or bimetal material. 
   Coil / Roll Coating       Coil coating, also called roll coating, is a continuous, high-speed roll-to-roll process for coating metal before it is fabricated into parts or a finished product.  The coil coating process is the most environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, and cost-effective way to apply paint to a metal surface. 
   Dip / Immersion Coating       In dip coating or immersion coating processes, parts are dipped or immersed into a bath or tanks filled the liquid coating solution. 
   Dry Lubricant Coating       Dry lubricants are used to coat surfaces such as machine parts, fittings, cams, springs, gears, cables, springs, leather, plastic and elastomeric gaskets.  The most common forms of dry lubricant are molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), possibly mixed together, or with adhesion promoters.  Desirable properties as the result of coating with dry lubricants include reduced friction, high load performance, reduced power input, wear reduction, prevention of metal to metal contact, antistick properties, prevention of galling and scoring, cleanliness, and protection against moisture and corrosion. 
   E-coat (Anodic / Cathodic)       E-coat, electrocoat or electrophoretic coating processes use the charging of particles to attract paint or coating particles or molecules in an immersion bath to the surface of a submerged part.  E-coating is a dip coating process where the coating or paint solids suspended in the bath are given an electrical charge, which is then attracted to the part. In a method closely paralleling electroplating, paint is deposited using direct electrical current. The electrochemical reactions that occur cause water-soluble resins to become insolubilized onto parts that are electrodes in the E-coating paint tank. Subsequent resin curing is required.  E-coat processes are also referred to as electrocoating, electrodeposition, electronic coating, e-painting, electronic painting, electro coating, electrophoretic coat and electrophoresis coating. 
   Galvanizing       Galvanizing is the practice of immersing clean, oxide-free iron or steel into molten zinc in order to form a zinc coating that is metallurgically bonded to the iron or steel surface. The zinc coating protects the surface against corrosion by providing protection to the iron or steel in two ways. It shields the base metal from the atmosphere and because it is more electronegative than iron or steel, the zinc reacts with corroding agents first, providing a longer service lifetime for the part. 
   Hardfacing       Hardfacing is a process, which welds materials with different properties to the substrate. Hardfacing processes are very useful for improving wear and corrosion resistance to selected areas of machinery, such as cutting edges of earth-moving machinery. Common hardfacing techniques include arc, torch, and other processes. 
   Liner - Applied / Spray On       Spray-on liners, applied lining systems or high build coatings are formed in place through an spray, troweling, gunning or thermal deposition process. Some protective liners and lining systems are available as fluoroplastic films or barrier membranes applied to a surface with an adhesive. Others applied linings are available as coated cloths or tarps. Liners and high build coatings are thicker compared to typical paint and coating applications; e.g., liners are measured in inches while coatings are measured in mils (0.001 inches). 
   Liner - Tile / Shaped       Tile, block, sectional liners, inserts and shaped lining sections are cemented or bonded to a surface and then grouted or sealed.  Tile linings are useful when the entire internal surface of a ball mill, crusher or other process vessel requires wear protection. Shaped liner sections are used to protect corners within vessels or bends within piping. Wear pad, plates, or strips are shaped sections attached to surfaces through mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding, brazing or welding. Wear pads or shaped liner sections are useful when a specific region of a surface needs protection.  
   Painting       A continuous coating is applied to the substrate as a protective and/or decorative coating.  
   Phosphate Coating       Phosphate coating is a treatment used on steel, iron, castings, and steel-based substrates to protect metal from corrosion and improve coating adhesion.  In the phosphating process, the surface is treated with a solution of phosphoric acid and other chemicals, which react with the metal to form a mildly protective layer if insoluble crystalline.  There are many types of phosphate coatings, including zinc and manganese. 
   Plastic Coating       Substrate is coated in a plastic resin.  Used as a protective, decorative and/or insulating coating. 
   Plating / Electroplating       Plating is a process used to deposit a coating onto a metal or conductive surface using a metal salt solution of the metal coating to be deposited.  Electroplating requires the application of DC power, while electroless plating does not. 
   Powder Coating       Powder coating is finishing technologies in which dry paint particles are electrostatically charged and applied to a grounded part.  Electrostatic attraction holds powder particles on the part surface until heat is added to flow the powder together and cure it. Parts must be electrically conductive. Although powder coating is most widely used on metal parts, recent technological developments have broadened the type of substrates to include glass, special plastics and wood. 
   Rubber Coating       Substrate is coated in a rubber resin.  Typical application is dip molding.  Used as a protective, decorative and/or insulating coating. 
   Screen Printing / Selective Coating       Supplier has the capability to provide screen printing or other selective coating processes. 
   Thermal Spraying       A continuous coating by melting the consumable material into droplets and impinging these droplets on the substrate. The thickness of the coatings may range from 25 µm to 2.5 mm (.001 - .1 in). The thermal spray coatings compete with plating and paint coating for atmospheric corrosion resistance in water tanks, TV towers, bridges, and other large steel structures. 
   Thin Film Coating       Thin film coatings play a prominent role on the manufacture of many electric devices. They are used to apply dopants and sealants to chips and other microelectronic parts. Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) are two most common types of thin film coating methods. 
   Titanium Nitride Coating       Titanium nitride (TiN) is an extremely hard, thin film coating that is applied mostly to precision metal parts.  It is the most common hard coating in use today. TiN has an excellent combination of performance properties, attractive appearance, and safety (meets FDA requirements for surgical tools and implants as well as food contact applications).  
   Web Recoating / Refinishing       Web coating services apply a layer of resin or other liquid coating to the surface of a continuous sheet of material. 
   Other       Other unlisted coating process.
