Grow Your Reach, Shrink Lead Time with Trusted Supplier Network

The process of finishing critical metal parts for our clients in industries that include aerospace, medical device design, semiconductor manufacturing, pharmaceutical production – and many others – is incredibly precise. Success can be measured in ten-thousandths of an inch.

What Can and Can’t Be Passivated?

Passivation is a widely used chemical finishing process to remove contaminants and improve the corrosion resistance of metal parts, including stainless steel and alloys like Nitinol and titanium. While passivation can be effective for many parts, for certain parts and…

The Benefits of Electropolishing for 440C Stainless Steel

If you’re manufacturing parts with 440C stainless steel and relying on passivation to get the finish you need, you may be overlooking an opportunity to dramatically improve the corrosion resistance of your parts.

Electropolishing for Better, More Durable Plated Parts

While electropolishing is best known for the results it achieves as the last step in the process for finishing critical metal parts, it can also be an interim step for improving the results of parts that will undergo plating.
