A Closer Look at Metal Finishing and Metal Finishing Companies

Here at Sun Glo Industrial Plating we firmly believe there is more to metal finishing than “dipping and shipping” products. We want to stand out among other metal finishing companies, so we work hard on constantly refining our products and procedures to provide an unparalleled level of service for small businesses, large corporations, and every type of company in between. With more than 25 years of expertise in the metal finishing business, we have the knowledge to ensure your order exceeds expectations.

Today, let’s review some metal finishings and learn why not all metal finishing companies are the same.

Anodizing: The Metal Finish for Electrical Applications

Anodizing is a finishing that provides increased protection against oxidation and helps with the conduction of electricity – but that’s not all. Anodizing makes metal harder and provides a matte finish, which is nice when the metal sheets will be on display in your completed project. There are three different types of anodizing processes, each geared for specific function of the final project.

Haperizing: The Metal Finish for Quick Refining

Think of a rock tumbler that makes rocks smoother and shinier. This is similar to the process of haperizing, albeit on a much smaller scale. The haperizing process is used by metal finishing companies to quickly refine and debur smaller metal parts by tumbling them in a high G-force barrel machine. Although it sounds forceful, the haperizer is suitable for fragile metal parts. The result is a smooth, shiny finish that eliminates the need to individually finish and polish small parts by hand.

Paint: The Classic Metal Finish

There is a reason why some processes never go out of style. While we are a metal finishing company with some very high-end and technical finishing processes, we also know that sometimes a paint finish is the best choice for your project. Wet paint provides a thin, even coating and in many cases, is the best option when color matching is desired.

Not all Metal Finishing Companies are the Same

Anodizing, haperizing and painting are just three of the many services we provide. While you have a choice of metal finishing companies in Florida, it is important to choose one that has the experience and technical expertise, along with the price points you need, and the ability to deliver your project on time and on budget. We pride ourselves on the many different kinds of metal finishings we provide, ensuring you get the coating you need. Your Sun Glo finished metal parts will be durable, attractive and perfectly suited for their applications.
