Finishes Quick Reference Guide

Finish Properties
A process that utilizes temperature, vacuum and/or pressure to repair or improve the reliability of porous parts.
  • Metal Castings
  • Forgings
  • Powdered Metal Parts
  • Plastics

Seals micro porosity in 90% to 95% of parts processed

Type III Industrial Hardcoat Anodizing
Electro Chemical Process that interacts with the metal surface forming a new, extremely hard metal surface. May be masked to manage coverage.
  • Aluminum
  • Aluminum Alloy

Color Spectrum:

  • Tan to Very Dark Grey to Black
  • Non-Conductive
  • Extremely Hard Surface
  • Thermally Neutral (500° Operating Temperatures)
  • Very High Lubricity
  • May be combined with MetaBrite™ for Colorization
Type II Industrial Conventional Anodizing
Electro Chemical Process that interacts with the metal surface forming a uniform and highly durable protective coating.
  • Aluminum
  • Aluminum Alloy

Color Spectrum:

  • Clear      • Violet
  • Red        •  Brown
  • Green     •  Black
  • Orange   •  Gold
  • Blue        •  Olive Drab
  • Yellow
  • Scratch Resistant
  • Corrosion Resistant
  • Non-Conductive
  • Highly Color Fast
  • Increased Metal Durability
Chromate Conversion & Non-Hexavalent Chromate Conversion
Mechanical Chemical Process that reacts with the metal surface to form a conductive film that coats any aluminum surface.
  • Aluminum
  • Aluminum Alloy

Color Spectrum Luster Finish:

  • Iridescent Golden Color or Clear
  • Scratch Resistant, Durable Coating
  • Little Build Up
  • Highly conductive
  • Moisture & Corrosive Resistant
  • Excellent Primer improves adhesion of paint or rubber
Mechanical Chemical Process that provides an aesthetically pleasing surface finish.

Sand or Die Castings of:

  • Aluminum
  • Aluminum Alloy
  • Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metal

Color Spectrum Luster Finish

  • Brown        •   Blue
  • Gold           •   Black
  • Yellow        •   Red
  • Green

May be followed by Anodizing, Industrial Hardcoat or Impregnation.

Vibratory Finishing
Gently vibrates parts in a non-marring media to remove small surface imperfections, rough edges and burrs.
  • Ferrous Metal
  • Non-Ferrous Metals
  • Extrusions
  • Castings
  • Stamped Metal

Smooth Edges by Removing

  • Burrs
  • Flash
  • Rough or Sharp Edeges

May be followed by Chromate, Type II Anodizing (All Colors), Industrial Hardcoat or Impregnation on aluminum
