Finishing Services

High-quality surface finishing services improve your part’s aesthetics and functions regardless of the manufacturing process used. Deliver quality metal, composites, and plastic finishing services so you can bring the prototype or part you dream of to life.  

Our Portfolio of Surface Finishing

Our part finishing services are exceptional as our teams are experts in plastic, composite, and metal surface finishing. Furthermore, we have state-of-the-art machines and infrastructure to bring your idea to life.  

as machined

Coming out of the machine after processing, our parts are cleaned of any sharp edges and burrs while retaining marks. With no added materials, the finish gives parts a surface roughness of 3.2 μm (126 μin).

As machined

bead blasting

Bead blasting cleans the surface of any impurities and peels coating through the propelling of blast media streams over the parts.

Bead blasting

anodizing

To increase surface hardness and dissipate heat, we use anodizing techniques to enhance the look of parts and blend well for painting and priming.

Anodizing

electroplating

Electroplating reduces metal cations in the electrolyte solution, producing a metallic coating on a metal surface. This process can be used for purposes of corrosion and wear resistance, as well as for decorative purposes.

Electroplating

polishing

Working on metal and hard plastics, our polishing uses highly efficient machinery to get our parts between Ra 0.8~Ra0.1 for a cleaner surface.

Polishing

powder coating

We apply a thin layer of protective polymer with the corona discharge phenomenon to give our part a lasting finish that protects from impacts and prevents wearing down.

Powder coating

brushing

Our brushing technique uses abrasive belts over the material to create diverse patterns that match the parts’ structure and color.

Brushing

painting

Spray droplets can be dispersed uniformly or in fine amounts to cover a wide surface area and bring out greater color to the part.

Painting

black oxide

Adding layers to metallic surfaces like steel, our black oxide technique improves appearance while maintaining durability.

alodine

We use chromate conversion coating or alodine to protect aluminum and other materials from corrosive elements, usually done before priming and painting parts.

Alodine

part marking

Helpful in brand recognition or parts organization, we use part marking that applies various printing methods during full-scale production to quickly embed barcodes, lettering and logos on the parts,

Our Surface Finishing Specifications

Part surfacing finishing techniques can either be for functional or aesthetic purposes. Each technique has requirements, such as materials, color, texture, and price. Below are the specifications of the plastic finishing techniques rendered by us.

Name Description Materials Color Texture Price Link
P04 2 S02 as machined As-machined The standard finish for our parts, the “as machined” finish, has a surface roughness of 3.2 μm (126 μin), which removes sharp edges and deburs parts cleanly. All materials n/a Stain $ /

Bead Blasting

Bead blasting is the process of powerfully propelling, generally with high pressure, a stream of blast media against a surface to remove unwanted coating layers and surface impurities.
