The Best Surface Effect For Your Metal Wallets Or Parts
How to make your metal wallet the prettiest? We offer a wide array of specialty surface finishing, including laser etching, anodizing, powder coating, metal plating, vacuum metalizing, chromate, chemical finishing, passivation, heat treatments, etc.
Anodizing helps to resist corrosion, increase surface hardness, improve resistance to wear. This process serves both functional and cosmetic purposes. There are two main types of anodizing:
Type II anodizing is mainly used to produce parts with a uniform, aesthetically pleasing surface and provides good corrosion and limited wear resistance, and has a wide variety of color dye options. The typical coating thickness: 12-18 μm for black, 8-12 μm for clear, 4-8 μm for color.
Type III anodizing also known as hard anodizing, provides excellent corrosion and wear resistance, suitable for functional applications, but is more limited in color—often clear or black only. The typical thickness 30-125 μm.
Powder coating adds a thin layer of protective polymer on the surface of the part. It uses corona discharge phenomenon to make powder coating adsorbed on the workpiece, which is a strong, wear-resistant finish. The typical thickness varies from approximately 50 μm up to 150 μm.
Plating is a metal finish that involves coating a metal part with a very thin layer of another metal or metal alloy, in order to protect from corrosion and oxidation of the base part, or to change its cosmetic appearance. Tin, Nickel, Zinc (galvanizing), and Chrome are all common plating metals.
Knowed as Vacuum metallizing is a form of physical vapor deposition, a process of combining metal with a non-metallic substrate through evaporation. Layer thicknesses are typically a few micron and a range of finishes are possible. The most common metal used in vacuum metallization is aluminum for a variety of reasons such as cost, thermodynamic, and reflective properties.
5.Printing & Etching
You can print custom text and logos on the parts. Silk screening can be used for larger surfaces and when mixing multiple colors for even more complex graphics; Pad printing can be used for printing on curved surfaces; Laser etching is ideal for making precise and permanent marks on metal and some plastics.
We can do two-color or multi-color painting to obtain a more complicated appearance that looks like 2K molding.
UV coating is able to resist ultraviolet radiation and protect the underlying material to enhance durability and wear or scratch resistance. With EMI, the coating is used to shield or contain electronic equipment from magnetic fields or interference.
