Chemical Black

We offer a hot and cold black process service that is ideal for steel and iron machine tools.  Chemical black process offers a decorative finish which is a reproducible jet black finish on most materials, and a blue / black finish on highly polished surfaces.

The chemically blackened surface is coated with de-watering oil as a part of the process, to prevent corrosion and protect the black surface.
