GMP Metal Surface Treatment

Gmetal can provide different types of metal surface treatment, the main types that we offered are as following:

  • Metal Peening: It involves bombarding the metal surface with small, rounded particles at high velocities.
  • Metal Polishing: It used to improve the appearance and finish of metal objects by removing imperfections, scratches, and roughness from their surfaces.
  • Metal Burnishing: Burnishing is a non-cutting process that uses pressure and friction to smooth and shine the metal surface, creating a polished and refined finish without removing any material.
  • Electroplating Metal: Electroplating¬†is commonly used to enhance the appearance, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance of metal components.
  • Anodizing Metal: Anodizing is one of the most widely used surface treatment techniques for aluminum.
  • Thermal Spraying: In thermal spraying, the heated particles impact the substrate’s surface, forming a dense and adherent coating.
The Process of Metal Surface Treatment

The Process of Metal Surface Treatment

In order to give the metal part a smooth surface Gmetal provides metal surface treatment service, and the following are the main steps to improve the properties and apperances of metal stamping and fasterning parts:

  1. Cleaning and Pre-treatment: The initial step is to thoroughly clean the metal surface to remove any dirt, grease, oils, rust, or other contaminants.
  2. Surface Preparation: After cleaning, the metal surface may undergo additional surface preparation, such as etching or abrasive blasting, to create a roughened or textured surface.
  3. Surface Treatment Method: Depending on the desired outcome and the specific characteristics of the metal component choose optimal surface treatment.
  4. Post-Treatment: After the primary surface treatment, additional processes may be applied, such as sealing, rinsing, drying, or curing, to enhance the effectiveness and durability of the treatment.
  5. Quality Control: Throughout the entire process, quality control measures are taken to ensure that the metal surface treatment meets the required standards and specifications.

The Importance of Metal Surface Treatment

Metal surface treatment is of significant importance in various industries and applications due to the following reasons:

  • Corrosion Resistance: One of the primary reasons for metal surface treatment is to improve the material’s resistance to corrosion. Coatings and treatments like anodizing, electroplating, and phosphating create protective barriers that prevent direct contact between the metal surface and corrosive agents, extending the component’s lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.
  • Wear Resistance: Surface treatments like thermal spraying, nitriding, and carburizing enhance the hardness and wear resistance of metals, making them suitable for applications subjected to abrasive wear, friction, and high-stress conditions. This extends the lifespan of components in industrial machinery, engines, and mechanical systems.
  • Adhesion and Bonding: Surface treatments such as phosphating and passivation create ideal conditions for paint adhesion and bonding of adhesives. This is crucial in industries like automotive and aerospace, where painted surfaces or bonded joints are common.
  • Electrical and Thermal Conductivity: Some surface treatments can modify the electrical and thermal conductivity of metals. For example, anodizing can create insulating layers on aluminum, while certain coatings can improve thermal conductivity, making them suitable for electronic and heat dissipation applications.
