   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. 
   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. 
   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. 
   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. 
   Spray Coating       Coating, sealant or resin is applied using a sprayer or atomizing applicator. Pressurized nozzles or spray gun or a rotary atomizers are common applicators. An electrostatic charge can also be applied to reduce overspray. 
   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. 
   Other       Other unlisted coating process.

   Additional Services       
   Your choices are...         
   Abrasive / Blasting       The removal of 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. 
   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.
