Surface Treatments

Surface Treatments

Metal surface treatment is a process where metal parts are prepared for painting. The preparation is commonly referred to as coatings pretreatment. This usually involves creating a physical barrier that will protect metal against a corrosive environment.

Surface Polishings

Polishing is the process of creating a smooth and shiny surface by rubbing it or by applying a chemical treatment, leaving a clean surface with a significant specular reflection (still limited by the index of refraction of the material according to the Fresnel equations).
