Technical Guide: Metal Finishing for the Automotive Industry

Improving Value, Reliability and Part Performance

The automotive industry requires fasteners, hinges, and other components electropolished for automotive applications. With the proper preparation, electropolishing can yield a bright and uniform surface finish that will never crack or peel but many electropolished auto components are buried deep in the vehicle. To properly function, engineers are focused on safety, reliability and performance. For these reasons, automotive instruments require a finish process that: 
  • Increases corrosion resistance
  • Removes surface burrs
  • Offers fatigue life improvement
  • Enhances microfinish
  • Creates an easy-to-clean, sanitary surface
  • Provides a bright and decorative finish
  • Promotes optimal part function and performance

  • Stainless Steels
  • Alloys
  • Aluminum
  • Titanium
  • Nitinol
