In-House Anodizing - components up to 21 feet long
Anodizing, one of the most environmentally-sound finishing processes, is used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. The by-products of anodizing do not contain heavy metals and the aluminum hydroxide and aluminum sulfate are often recycled for the manufacturing of alum, baking powder, cosmetics, newspring, and fertilizer.
The benefits of anodizing include superior appearance and excellent abrasion resistance along with increases in corrosion and wear resistance. Anodizing also provides better adhesion for paint primers and glues than bare metal.

|Width:||Up to 36"/3'|
|Height:||Up to 60"/5'|
|Length:||Up to 264"/22'|
In-House Chemical Resistant Coatings and Protective Linings
Products that demand safe and consistent function in the presence of environmental and industrial chemicals will benefit from chemical resistant coatings. These coatings offer a variety of valuable attributes that include chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, durability and lubricating properties.
In-House Powder Coating - components up to 20 feet long
Powder coating is an electrostatic, dry-powder painting process followed by a thermal curing of the finish. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. It provides uniform coverage and results in an attractive, durable, corrosion resistant and UV stable finish.
|Part Specifications - Powder Coating|
|Width:||Up to 96"/8'|
|Height:||Up to 60"/5'|
|Length:||Up to 240"/20'|
In-House Brushed Metal
Unlike metal plating, brushed metal finishing is an effective method for removing surface imperfections. The brushing gives the metal a distinctive look as it retains some of its metallic sheen and is given a pattern of very fine lines. Commonly brushed metals include stainless steel, aluminum, and nickel.
