Material Modification

Do you desire longer usage and enhanced properties of your products, that’s possible! Here at Special Platings we have develop a technology to enhance your products. By exposing your products to a temperature varying from -200 to +200 degrees regulated via a computer controlled process we can re-arrange the molecules that make up the product. This makes sure that the quality and properties of the material get improved significantly. But it can have more advantages for you than that, a few examples:

 

  • The product is more wear resistant and because of this has a longer life expectancy
  • Less friction
  • A better conduction of electricity
  • Better conduction of heat
  • Weak spots (for example by welding) are restored
  • Removal of tension within the material caused by for example welding, grinding or cutting of the material
  • Less high frequency vibrations
  • The material is easier to process

The following materials are well suited to receive our material modification treatment:

  • Steel
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminum
  • Titanium
  • Nylon

Areas of application:

  • Knives
  • Molds
  • Bearings, gears and chains
  • Break discs
