Surface treatment is a key part of prototype manufacturing that serves a variety of purposes.
ADVANCE can provide completed prototypes applied with surface treatment.
Since surface treatment is generally a second step treatment, this process is being outsourced; however, we provide a comprehensive service from processing up to surface treatment.
Surface treatment options
ADVANCE offers a range of surface treatment options including painting, plating, anodizing, grain processing, coating, printing and quenching, as well as washing, a key stage of the molding process.
In addition to conventional decorative finishes and surface treatments to improve wear and corrosion resistance, demand is increasing for new functional coatings and surface treatments.
Surface treatment on clear plastic parts
Prototypes of clear plastic components used in camera parts and vehicle lights are subject to post-treatment after cutting and shaping. This is then followed by manual polishing, which is very important for achieving the transparency specifications required by the client. Surface treatment can make a difference to the finish of clear plastic pieces.
ADVANCE engineers determine the most appropriate type of surface treatment to suit each piece based on the shape of the component and the transparency specifications. Our highly excellent surface polishing technology for transparent plastic materials is widely appreciated and trusted by clients.
