Powder Coating - Zinc Plating - Bright Nickel - Rack & Barrel Plating, ISO 9001-2000 Qualified, Over 30 Years Experience
Zinc Plating- is widely used to provide protection for steel and other metals. It is deposited in thicknesses ranging from 0.1 mils (.0001") to over 1.0 mils (.001") thick. The low cost, protective quality and attractive look of zinc makes it a very popular finish for fasteners, metal stampings, computer enclosures, automotive parts and many other items.
Rack and Barrel Plating - IEP does both rack and barrel processing.
Rack Plating is ideal for larger and/or delicate parts which could be damaged in the barrel process. IEP can rack plate parts up to 11 feet long.
Barrel Plating is more applicable for smaller parts which will not be damaged as the plating barrel slowly rotates in the various process solutions.
Both barrel and rack processed parts will produce a very attractive and durable zinc plated finish.Chromate Coating To increase the corrosion protection of zinc, chromate coatings are normally applied over the zinc. The chromate coatings come in various colors and offer various amounts of protection.
Chromate Coating- To increase the corrosion protection of zinc, chromate coatings are normally applied over the zinc. The chromate coatings come in various colors and offer various amounts of protection. Clolors incl;ude Clear, Yellow, Black, Blue, Olive Drab, Bright Nickel.
Powder Coating - Finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electro statically charged and sprayed on a grounded part. The curing cycle melts the powder fusing the coating for a durable high quality finish.
Bright Dip on Brass - We can clean and brighten up brass and then apply a protective film to prevent tarnish.
Stripping and Cleaning - IEP can strip old plating in order to replate or we can strip plating and apply oil to prevent rust. We also clean rust and scale from parts.
Bake to Relieve Hydrogen Embrittlement - As a result of trapped hydrogen, hardened material and certain alloys can become brittle after zinc plating. When required IEP can bake the plated material to remove the trapped hydrogen from under the surface of the material.
Note: If IEP does not have the process you are looking for then we can still help. We work closely with other plating shops to direct clients to the supplier that can best meet their needs
