Our anodizing processes are typically applied to machined aluminum parts to reduce corrosion and add an appealing metallic coloring to the porous aluminum substrate. Anodizing helps parts resist scratching, is a natural electrical insulator, and is one of the most durable finishes available. We offer three specific types of quick-turn anodizing options to protect your parts:  

Type II

  • Class 1 (clear)   
  • Class 2 (black)    

Type III (hard coat)

  • Class 2 (black)

Chromate Plating

Chromate conversion coating protects your parts from corrosion by chemically changing the properties of the metal. It also offers electrical connectivity and the ability to paint the part. Our chromate plating is Type II, non-hexavalent (clear).
