Surface Finishing Service: Process & How Does it Work

 

Surface finishing is the process of utilizing different techniques to alter the surface of an object.

Surface finishing is a broad range of industrial processes that alter the surface of a manufactured item to achieve a certain property, Finishing processes may be employed to improve appearance, adhesion or wettability, solderability, corrosion resistance, tarnish resistance, chemical resistance, wear resistance, hardness, modify electrical conductivity, remove burrs and other surface flaws, and control the surface friction.

Surface finishing processes can be categorized by how they affect the workpiece:

  • Removing or reshaping finishing
  • Adding or altering finishing

 

 

 

Benefits of Metal Surface Finishing Process

The functions of metal surface treatment can be summarized as follows:

  • Improve the appearance
  • Add specific beautiful colors
  • Change the luster
  • Enhance chemical resistance
  • Increase wear resistance
  • Limit effects of corrosion
  • Reduce friction
  • Remove surface defects
  • Cleaning the parts
  • Serve as a primer coat
  • Adjust the sizes

Powder Coating

 

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, powder coating is typically applied electrostatically and then cured under heat or with ultraviolet light. Take a look on our metal stamping services.
