Plating processes

ChinaTech Sourcing can also arrange for your parts to be finished by a range of approved suppliers offering plating or passivation.

Examples of plating processes include:

  • Electro plating
  • Anodizing (available in various finishes and colours)
  • Chromate conversion

Some of the Chinese companies we use for powder coating and painting have their own plating facilities for pre-treatment purposes, which helps to ensure overall control of finishing and corrosion performance.

If you have specific corrosion performance criteria we are happy to work with you to develop the specifications and perform salt fog testing on sample parts.

All our plating processes are ROHS compliant, and components can be independently tested by accredited laboratories in China and the UK. We take special care to ensure processes are controlled and, where necessary, that Western branded treatments are used (for example, Surtec 650 for chromate conversion to avoid the presence of Hexavalent Chromium).
