Do you provide on-site polishing?

We do not provide on-site polishing. All parts must be taken apart and brought in for review.

How are parts polished?

All parts are polished by hand; large parts greater than 6' to 8' are near the limit of our capabilities. Size can also be determining factor in which finished are available.

How should aluminum parts be prepared?

Coatings must be removed (paint). Previously anodized parts will need to be chemically stripped prior to being re-anodized.

Why and when is baking necessary?

When parts are coated, hydrogen atoms can diffuse into the metal, filling up atomic voids in the structure; this inclusion of hydrogen changes the chemical structure of the metal to one that is more brittle. Baking is a process where the metal is subjected to heat in order to remove the spare hydrogren atoms from the metal. Tap here to find out more.
