Metal surface treatment improves sheet metal performanceDiscover the advances metal surface treatment grants and request an estimate from a company specialised in sheet metal processing to obtain complex and assembled products.
Surface treatment allows metals to acquire mechanical-physical characteristics able to make products more resistant with higher performance. For this reason, in sheet metal processing, metal treatment is essential, especially when complex and assembled products ready to market must be created. Metal treatment, in fact, increases sheet metal performance in terms of:
Surface treatment delay the metal oxidation process, thus prolonging the duration of the single products and hindering rust formation. Metal surface treatments thus become essential for all those products that will be in contact with the elements, such as car components, or products subject to stress from water or other liquids, such as kitchen robots.
Thanks to metal surface treatments, single sheet metal products also acquire greater surface hardness and thus become more resistant, also from the mechanical stress standpoint, a fundamental aspect when dealing with electromechanical or home appliance components.
Processes such as phosphate-coating or nickel-plating make the sheet metal surface more homogeneous and suited for subsequent processes. Subsequent paint applications are thus promoted through these processes and the colours are more even and glossy.
Burnishing, anodising, polishing, painting, etc., are surface treatments that allow the sheet metal to obtain a more attractive aspect, in line with the end product design. Whether dealing with components for the medical, vending, home appliance or car sectors, metal treatments becomes almost mandatory to make products more attractive and be successful on the market.
