Chemical Processing is the process of changing the surface of an object for the purpose of improving its appearance and/or durability.

Metal finishing can be used to improve the following qualities of the metal:

  • Appearance
  • Adhesion (wettability)
  • Solderability
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Tarnish resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Hardness
  • Modify electrical conductivity
  • Remove surface flaws
  • Control surface friction
  • Remove ferrous contaminants

At Arrow Cryogenics, all our chemical processing services are performed entirely in-house.

We offer a variety of chemical processing services for your part and component needs, some of which include:

  • Aluminum Anodizing
  • Hard Coat Aluminum Anodizing
  • Electropolishing
  • Passivations
  • Cerakote
  • Trivalent Chromate
