Specialty Plating refers to new technologies in the electroplating and metal finishing industries. Spectrum Metal Finishing Inc is always at the forefront of these developments in an attempt to provide our customers with the broadest offering of services and finishes.

Prior to being electroplated, most products require some type of preparatory grinding, burnishing or polishing depending on the state of the material and the desired quality of the finish. Spectrum has a dedicated Mechanical Polishing service area with a variety of machinery and processes to burnish, grind and polish all of your unique products.

All of Spectrum’s electroplating finishes offer great wear and corrosion resistance, however, to increase the durability of our electroplating finishes, Spectrum can provide a range of post plating services. Clear powder coat, translucent color powder coat and bake enamel can be added as an additional finish to our Gold Plating, Silver Plating, Nickel Plating, Black Nickel Plating, Copper Plating, Brass Plating or Electroless Nickel Plating finishes.

“Spectrum Metal Finishing helped us find a suitable alternate plated finish to chrome that allowed parts to be barrel finished rather than racked, again greatly reducing our costs.

Spectrum Metal Finishing is easy to work with and they have been very willing to bring in new plating chemistries to meet our plating needs. Spectrum is a great company to do business with.”
