Our NADCAP-certified chemical conversion plating offers excellent corrosion protection on chassis components, equipment fixtures, and frames. Performed in our large chemical conversion tanks, our plating services are ideal for aluminum chassis parts. Our plating department has a complete etching and chemical line, which is certified to MIL-C-5541 Class A & C standards. Parts with dimensions up to 6' x 4' x 3' can be plated by us.

We use spraying, dipping, or roll coating methods to apply chemical conversion coatings. Apart from corrosion protection, our Class A coatings also improve paint adhesion, hydration resistance, and adhesive bonding in components. Scrapes or bare spots produced through fabrication are completely covered through chemical conversion coatings. We measure and verify the thickness of the plating/coating using Positector thickness testers.
