Electroplating specialists and surfacing finishing include:

Zinc plating

We offer rack and barrel zinc plating with any kind of passivates and top coats.

Zinc plating involves zinc metal being electrode-posited on to components. Electro zinc offers excellent corrosion resistance and sacrificial protection. A typically thicknesses of 10-12µm with passivation can be achieved, resulting in over 500 hours salt spray test.

We use an alkaline zinc solution, which is specially formulated to address the problems of adhesion failure associated with many other zinc solutions. Alkaline zinc is ideal for bore plating too. It provides a level surface deposit over the whole component. It also allows for much thicker deposits without any build up on the corners unlike acid zinc.

Nickel Plating

We use a proprietary bright Nickel solution, designed to deliver extremely white deposits, which is ideal for use under chrome. Bright nickel can be deposited on steel and aluminium and is often used to produce a stainless steel like appearance.

Our bright nickel plating process is ideal for decorative and cosmetic applications. It offers good corrosion resistance with high levelling and ultra-white nickel deposits. Nickel is also used for engineering purposes where brightness is not the primary factor.

Powder Coating

Nuns Street Plating provides an application of dry powder coating and wet spraying service. The powder coating is an electrostatic charge process which will ensure a complete coverage of paint on all shapes and sizes. The powder applied is fused to the surface, and then fired in a temperature-controlled oven which forms a hard protective coating.

Powder coating applied over zinc coating process offers an excellent durable scratch, chemical and corrosion protection.

Epoxy, polyester, nylon, antibacterial, fire resistant, satin, matt and gloss all RAL and BS colours are available on request.

Request powder coating to any specification and colour; even multi-coloured service is available. We have full pre-treatment and preparation facilities.

Anodising

We offer a sulphuric anodising process which is an electrolytic treatment for aluminium that produces a coating of aluminium oxide. The coating exhibits excellent corrosion resistance and it can be dyed in a variety of colours

Anodising is ideal for decorative applications including architectural metalwork, consumer goods, bike parts and general applications that require a clear natural finish. It is suitable for general protective purposes and for the production of a suitable surface for subsequent painting or adhesive bonding.

We provide anodising services in clear, red, blue black, green and yellow.

Chromate Conversion

Iridite NCP, Alocrom 1000 / 1200 and Alodine are very versatile surface treatments used on aluminium.  They provide a base for painting without the need for an etch primer and allows bonding. Chromate conversion increases the corrosion resistance while still preserving electrical conductivity unlike the anodising process.

Phosphating

Zinc phosphate 401 is suited for the pre-treatment of steels; it produces a grey colour on most materials.

Manganese phosphate 601 is suited for the pre-treatment of iron and produces a black colour on most materials.

All components are finished with an oil protection.
