Some other examples of the surface finishings we provide for our machined parts :
Satin and Ground
This finish is produced by polishing with a 220–280 grit belt or wheel softened with a 220–230 greaseless compound or very fine non woven abrasive belt or pad. Polishing lines will be soft and less reflective.
Anodising is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts.
The process is called "anodising" because the part to be treated forms the anode electrode of an electrical circuit. Anodising increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and provides better adhesion for paint primers and glues than bare metal does.
Alocrom 1200 is ideal for coating all types of aluminium and aluminium alloys including high silicon pressure die-castings. It should be used on aluminium wherever maximum corrosion resistance and when electrical conductivity is required. It is suitable for components that are to be painted or left unpainted. It gives a protective golden coloured coating which is, like anodising, integral with the aluminium.
