Many customers have questions about our process and other options they are considering.

  • Zinc Plating is used to slow rusting. It should not be considered as bright cosmetic finish. 
  • Cold rolled steel has nicer finish then hot rolled.
  • Electro Polishing Stainless does not remove scratches. It shines the scratch.
  • Aluminum in its raw form, cannot be painted without peeling later.
  • Zinc Phosphate is a heavy crystal coating used to absorb oil to retard rusting.
  • Black Oxide finish does NOT retard rust. It is similar to “gun blue” and needs oil.
  • All dead holes and welded tubing will hold chemical solutions and drain on part later.
  • Electro Plating & Polishing have their limitations. Their inside may not be plated or polished.
