Metal Finishing

Metal finishers use a variety of materials and processes to clean, etch, and plate metallic and non-metallic surfaces to create a workpiece that has the desired surface characteristics. Typical supporting processes can include degreasing, cleaning, pickling, etching, and/or polishing. At Cedar Lake Engineering we utilize metal finishing for painting, plating, coating, labeling and cleaning. Overall, metal finishing alters the surface of metal products to enhance:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Wear resistance
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Electrical resistance
  • Reflectivity and appearance (e.g., brightness or color)
  • Torque tolerance
  • Solderability
  • Tarnish resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Ability to bond to rubber (e.g., vulcanizing)
  • Hardness
