Plating Secondary Services
Chem-Film or Chromate Conversion
Industrial Silver plating provides an economical coating typically used for aerospace, telecommunication and electrical products. It bestows a surface that can be soldered and exhibits low electrical resistance. The tarnish resistance is equal to that of a good water dip lacquer coating. Deeco maintains optimum operating conditions in order to produce the highest quality Silver finish and employs a development, which enhances brightness, improves tarnish resistance and increases the hardness. Our silver processes produce a matte to bright finish on aluminum, brass, copper, and steel.
Electroless and Electro-Deposited Nickel Plating
These Nickel Plating processes deposit a uniform thickness of Nickel onto products by chemical reduction; this allows even the most complex shaped product to be plated with no edge build-up. Other advantages of Nickel Plating include superior chemical and corrosion resistance, a hard, highly protective, bright, and reflective coating that yields excellent wear. Nickel's low friction and superb conductivity characteristics make it appropriate for Electronic, Tooling, and Commercial Industries. It is also used for cosmetic appearances. Deeco Metals offers masking by means of stop-off lacquers, assorted tapes and plugs for selected "no-plating" product areas. Both plating methods may be applied to Aluminum, Brass, Copper, and Steel metals.
Dry Film - Solid Film Lubricant
Dry film lubricants, also known as Solid Film Lubricants, provide a lubricating film and are intended for use as dry, low friction coatings to reduce wear and inhibit troublesome corrosion. Solid Film Lubricants have a wide temperature range and high load carrying ability. Solid Films conduct electricity or may be used as insulators. Being clean lubricants they do not attract dust or dirt and are not diluted or washed from surfaces by water or most solvents. High-quality dry film lubricant fills all the voids and depressions of a surface, covering it with a solid, long-lasting lubricating film capable of withstanding load and environmental extremes. Deeco's applications can be applied to any metal and conforms to many specifications.
Gold Plating is used for many different electronic and electrical purposes, where the part is designed to operate on complex, high-reliability electronic devices. The majority being applied to three specific types of components: semiconductors, printed/etched circuits, contacts/connectors and high-end decorative items. Industries also use Gold plating for decorative applications. Deeco Metals offers Gold plating which can easily be applied to brass, aluminum, copper or steel.
Tin plating is extensively used in Food, Electrical, and Electronic Industries. Because it is safe and nontoxic, Tin is universally utilized in the Food Processing Industry. Plus offers first-rate corrosion resistance and is pliable with low porosity. Also used for Electrical and Electronic, Tin plating has the ability to protect base metals from oxidation, thereby preserving the potential for soldering. Tin provides a bright cosmetic surface, excellent electrical conductivity and applies without difficulty to metals such as steel, copper, brass, and aluminum.
Zinc and Zincate Plating
Deeco Metals offers two types of Zinc plating: Alkaline Zinc exhibits good brightness, ductility, and chromate receptivity, and has reliable and consistent coverage. Chloride Zinc deposits an outstanding brightness and plates difficult substrates such as castings. Zinc plating is used extensively in Automotive, Aerospace and Military products. It is available in Clear, Yellow or OD Green, and may be applied to steel, aluminum, copper or brass depending on the choice of zinc process.
