Complete Solutions, from Start to Finish

Updated: Feb 28, 2023

Strategic alliances with many local, outside processing professionals provide additional finishing services that our customers request


Our partnerships allow us to offer a variety of treatments and finishes on parts that several different industries may require. Additionally, this helps us offer flexibility and consistency to meet order demand. Some of the treatments and finishes we can offer through outside processing are:



E-coating


The electrophoretic painting process consists of submerging a metal part in a water-based solution and a paint emulsion. An electric current is then applied which causes the paint to condense and form over the part. This process works especially well to coat complex shapes with hard-to-reach areas. Benefits include high efficiency and superior quality results at a relatively low cost.


Powder-coating


Powder-coating is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder applied electrostatically and then typically cured under heat or UV light. This process can achieve more specialty effects and much thicker, more durable, more uniform coatings with a significantly faster cure time.


Anodizing


This process is used to increase the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts resulting in increased resistance to corrosion and wear and providing better adhesion for paint primers and glues. Anodic films can be produced through a wide variety of processes and can create several cosmetic effects on a variety of different metals.


Passivation


Passivation is the process of coating material, so it becomes less readily affected or corroded by the environment. Passivation involves the creation of an outer layer of shield material, created by a chemical reaction with the base material, or allowed to build by air oxidization.


Heat treatment


This involves the specific purpose of heating or chilling to extreme temperatures to intentionally alter the material’s properties such as hardening or softening. To properly heat treat, precise control over temperature and time held at a specific temperature are required. Results can include increases and decreases in toughness, shear strength, and tensile strength.


Zinc coatings


Zinc coatings are applied to steel surfaces by a variety of processes with hot dip galvanizing being the most widely used. This process covers corners, seals edges, seams, and rivets, and penetrates recesses for complete protection against areas of common corrosion.


If the parts needed require special coatings or processes, Metal Solutions has the capability to make sure you always receive a complete part including the necessary outside processing.
