Below is a list of some typical questions our customers ask about Electrolizing® and our coatings. If you do not see the answer to your question, please contact us.
Q: What is the best way to receive a quote for a part needing the Electrolizing® coating?
A: Please contact our sales department with a drawing of the part to be coated. Include areas requiring the coating and indicate any masking to be done. Include the number of parts to be coated as well.
Q: What deposit thickness works the best?
A: Each application is different and can be discussed with an applications engineer. We will help you engineer the best deposit thickness for your specific application. Common deposit thicknesses encountered are 0.0001–0.0003″ or 0.0002–0.0004″ per side. Extreme wear or corrosion applications often are engineered at 0.0003″–0.0005″ per side.
Q: What makes the Electrolizing® coatings different from conventional coatings?
A: Electrolizing® provides an engineered coating technology rather than simply a plating. We maintain our processing baths for optimum performance. The performance of Electrolizing’s coatings, whether hardness, lubricity, or corrosion protection far exceeds other available chromium platings. Additionally, we have the ability to tailor our coatings to best enhance your application, which sets us apart from standard chrome platers.
Q: What are the metals that Electrolizing® can coat?
A: We can coat almost all common metals in use today including cold rolled steel, stainless steel, brass, tool steels, inconel, monel, copper, and bronze.
Al-COAT® was developed to provide the same performance enhancements on aluminum substrates that our customers rely on from Electrolizing.
