When it comes to finding the best way to protect our products from corrosion there are a few important factors that we consider. One of those factors is the durability of the coating.
Powder coating and baked enamel paint are widely used in the industry. They work well, but once scratched through to the metal they leave your equipment vulnerable to rust and the life of your equipment is reduced.
We will continue to use the industry standard coatings on most of our products. But we have decided that we will be electroplating our new USA made steel products. The plating substance we will be using has achieved one of the highest salt spray test results for corrosion resistance in the industry.
The company we have partnered with is one of the best in the industry with over 60 years of experience (family owned).The new plating will also be ROHS compliant. ROHS compliant means that we are plating with substances that meet all the health standards set by the EPA.

Also, we thought you may be interested in the plating process. There are many types and uses that you may need to be aware of. I have a link to a document about plating that I think you’ll find informative. Click here to view the plating guide
