METAL PLATING IN TORONTO.
Zinc-Nickel Plating Service In Toronto.
High corrosion protection without topcoats or organic finishes makes it ideal for parts where thread and recess fill are a concern. Around four times the hardness and therefore wear resistance of standard Zinc plating. Many of these features make Zinc-Nickel and environmentally friendly alternative for Cadmium Plating Cadmium plating Provides Superior Corrosion Resistance – protects the base metal for over 1000 hours to red rust. Withstands High Temperatures – can be used for automotive components that are exposed to higher temperatures Economical – provides much better corrosion resistance for any steel part intended for exterior use than comparably-priced conventional zinc.
Zinc electroplating Service In Toronto.
Is a soft, ductile, decorative, corrosion-resistant finish. Unlike most other commonly plated metals, zinc protects the substrate. The protection is accomplished by sacrificing itself. The zinc corrodes before the base metal thereby protecting the base metal. For additional corrosion protection, chromates are applied over the zinc. Chromates used in the zinc electroplating process become a component of the coating. Chromate films are typically very thin, and the chromate coating provides no measurable thickness to the overall coating.
Zinc-Iron Plating Service In Toronto.
Zinc-iron plating is one of several zinc-based alloy finishes that have gained in popularity in recent years—particularly in the automotive industry. It is an alloy plating consisting of 99+% zinc metal along with <1% iron. This alloy composition can produce corrosion protection results that are superior to traditional zinc plating. Zinc-iron plating is used solely for engineering and functional applications due to its less than desirable appearance. Its main use is to improve the corrosion resistance of steel parts. When applied, zinc-iron works as a sacrificial coating to prolong the life of the basis metal. The corrosion protection of zinc-iron plating can also be enhanced through a variety of chromate and seal post dip applications.
Pickling Toronto (Chemical Descaling) .
(METAL CLEANING TORONTO.)
Is typically used to remove oxide layers resulting from welding, heat-treating, and other high temperature operations. All of these oxide layers are generally referred to as "scale" and must be removed prior to Electropolishing or Passivating. Pickling is sometimes referred to as "Acid Washing" or "White Acid Pickling".
Black Oxide Coating Service In Toronto.
The coating is a dark aluminum-oxide layer that can adhere tightly to metal. This coating is used for a variety of practical and decorative purposes.
Screws, nuts and bolts are often given a black oxide coating to increase their abrasion resistance and give them a darker appearance.
Black oxide coating can be used to finish mechanical components because it provides a high temperature resistance and doesn't chip or flake easily. It also does not increase the thickness of the parts, allowing them to function properly
Cadmium Plating Service In Toronto.
Cadmium plating is still widely used in some applications such as aerospace fasteners and it remains in military and aviation specs.Cadmium plating (or "cad plating") offers a long list of technical advantages such as excellent corrosion resistance even at relatively low thickness and in salt atmospheres, softness and malleability, freedom from sticky and/or bulky corrosion products, galvanic compatibility with aluminum, freedom from stick-slip thus allowing reliable torquing of plated threads, can be dyed to many colors and clear, has good lubricity and solderability, and works well either as a final finish or as a paint base. If environmental concerns matter, in most aspects cadmium plating can be directly replaced with gold plating as it shares most of the material properties - gold is more expensive and cannot serve as a paint base.
Phosphate coating Service In Toronto.
Are often used to provide corrosion resistance, however, phosphate coatings on their own do not provide this because the coating is porous. Therefore, oil or other sealers are used to achieve corrosion resistance. This coating is called a phosphate and oil (P&O) coating. Zinc and manganese coatings are used to help break in components subject to wear and help prevent galling.
Most phosphate coatings serve as a surface preparation for further coating and/or painting, a function it performs effectively with excellent adhesion and electric isolation. The porosity allows the additional materials to seep into the phosphate coating and become mechanically interlocked after drying. The dielectric nature will electrically isolate anodic and cathodic areas on the surface of the part, minimizing underfilm corrosion that sometimes occurs at the interface of the paint/coating and the substrate.
Electroless Nickel Plating Service In Toronto.
Electroless nickel plating is an auto-catalytic reaction used to deposit a coating of nickel on a substrate. Unlike electroplating, it is not necessary to pass an electric current through the solution to form a deposit. This plating technique is to prevent corrosion and wear. EN techniques can also be used to manufacture composite coatings by suspending powder in the bath.
Electroless nickel plating has several advantages versus electroplating. Free from flux-density and power supply issues, it provides an even deposit regardless of workpiece geometry, and with the proper pre-plate catalyst, can deposit on non-conductive surfaces.
Bright Dip On Brass Service In Toronto.
Brass Bright Dipping is a two step immersion process used to remove surface corrosion or tarnishing from solid brass parts. The process is often used as a pretreatment to painting or followed by a clear coat in order to prevent future tarnishing.
The brass parts must first be thoroughly cleaned to remove all surface oils and grime that are present. Any oil present will cause the bright dipping process to be uneven.
The second step of the process involves a very strong acid dip to remove the corrosion and brighten the brass. The timing of this step is critical as too little will result in an uneven finish and too much will result in removal of too much brass metal from the parts.
Nickel Plating Service In Toronto.
Nickel electroplating is a technique of electroplating a thin layer of nickel onto a metal object. The nickel layer can be decorative, provide corrosion resistance, wear resistance, or used to build-up worn or undersized parts for salvage purposes.
Tin Plating Service In Toronto.
The tin-plating process is used extensively to protect both ferrous and nonferrous surfaces. Tin is a useful metal for the food processing industry since it is non-toxic, ductile and corrosion resistant. The excellent ductility of tin allows a tin coated base metal sheet to be formed into a variety of shapes without damage to the surface tin layer. It provides sacrificial protection for copper, nickel and other non-ferrous metals, but not for steel.
METAL PLATING IN TORONTO.
Tin is also widely used in the electronics industry because of its ability to protect the base metal from oxidation thus preserving its solderability. Chromate conversion coating is a type of conversion coating used to passivate aluminum, zinc, cadmium, copper, silver, magnesium, and tin alloys. It is primarily used as a corrosion inhibitor, primer, decorative finish, or to retain electrical conductivity. The process is named after the chromate found in the chromic acid used in the bath, more commonly known as hexavalent chromium. This type of bath is still the most widely used, however hexavalent chromium is toxic and, thus, highly regulated,so new non-hexavalent chromium based processes are becoming commercially available.

Chromate conversion coatings are common on everyday items such as hardware and tools and usually have a distinctive yellow color.
Olive Drab Plating Service In Toronto.
Olive drab is a green olive to dark olive in colour.
The first recorded use of olive drab as a color name in English was in 1892.
Olive drab was the color of the standard fighting uniform for US GIs and military vehicles during World War II. US soldiers often referred to their uniforms as "OD's" due to the color. The color used at the beginning of the war by the US Army was officially called Olive Drab #3, which was replaced by the darker Olive Drab #7 by 1944, and which was again replaced by Olive Green 107 or OG-107 in 1952 and continued as the official uniform color for combat fatigues through the Vietnam War, until replaced by Engineer Research & Development Laboratories (ERDL) camouflage uniforms. The ERDL uniforms were then replaced by M81 woodland camo fatigues as the primary US uniform scheme in the 1980s, and still retain olive drab as one of the color swatches in the pattern.

Passivation Stainless Steel Service In Toronto.
The Passivation Process
Passivation is a two-step procedure: Cleaning and Passivating treatment in an acid bath.Cleaning: grease, oil and shop debris and dirt must be carefully removed from the part by wiping with or immersion in an alkaline solution.Passivation: once cleaned, the part is immersed in a nitric acid/ water solution in which the nitric acid is 20-45% by volume. Nitric acid, by virtue of its ability to dissolve iron particles, allows the material of the part to regain its “stainlessness”. This means that the oxide film will once again form over the whole part, maximizing its corrosion resistance.Passivation Specifications applicable to work done by M AND M PLATING INC.ASTM A380-99 Standard Practice for Cleaning, Descaling and Passivation of Stainless Steel Parts, Equipment and Systems.ASTM A 967 Chemical Passivation Treatments for Stainless Steel Part
What Is Passivation?
To understand the concept of passivation, it is necessary to understand why stainless steels are “stainless”? The reason is that a very thin protective oxide film forms on the surface of clean stainless steel in the presence of oxygen in normal air. The effect is to render the surface “passive” or “inert”, i.e. in a condition of maximum protection.Passivation is a process performed to make a surface passive, that is to maximize its corrosion resistance.
Why Passivation service in Toronto ?
If stainless steels are naturally passive, why does the need for passivation arise?It is the result of the fabrication of stainless steel parts, say by machining. Contaminants such as iron particles,rust, free iron metal chips from shop dirt or cutting tools may be transferred to the surface of the stainless steel during fabrication, thus reducing the effectiveness of the original protective film.

Toronto Metal plating provides many benefits to products made from metal and other materials. Plating In Toronto is a manufacturing process in which a thin layer of metal coats a substrate. This can be achieved through electroplating, which requires an electric current, or through electroless plating In Toronto, which is in autocatalytic chemical process. In either case, the technique results in one or
several of the following benefits:
Improved corrosion resistance
Enhanced paint adhesion
Chrome Motorcycle Chromium plating often serves a merely decorative purpose, but can also foster heightened corrosion and friction resistance. Chromium most often plates nickel in the production of furniture and automotive trim products. Iron and steel are other common substrates of chrome plating, but usually require the use of a copper strike to provide proper deposition.
Chrome plating is an electroplating process that most often involves the use of a chromic acid known as hexavelent chromium. Trivalent chromium baths, which consist largely of chromium sulfate or chromium chloride, are another option for industrial purposes.
Gold Plating Toronto
Gold is prized for its high resistance to oxidation and electrical conductivity. Gold plating, which differs from gilding in that the gold is not a foil, is one of the simplest ways to impart these characteristics on
metals such as copper and silver. The process is often used for jewelry decoration and for improving conductivity of electronics parts such as electrical connectors.
When gold plating copper, tarnishing is an issue and can most easily be resolved by preceding deposition with a nickel strike. Also consider hardness and purity of the gold when determining factors such as optimal bath mixture and length of immersion.
Silver Plating Toronto.
METAL PLATING IN TORONTO.
Like gold, silver is used in plating applications that call for decorative appeal and improved electrical conductivity. In general, silver serves as a more cost-effective plating solution because it is cheaper than gold and plates copper well.
Issues that may limit silver plating as a viable plating solution include humidity and galvanic corrosion. Specifically, silver plating does not work well for applications that are subjected to high humidity because silver is prone to cracking and flaking, which may eventually expose the base substrate.
Nickel Plating Toronto
There is a nickel plating Toronto finish for almost any need. Nickel Plating Toronto can be deposited soft or had dull or bright, depending on process used and conditions employed in plating. Thus, hardness can range from 150-500 Vickers. Corrosion resistance is a function of thickness. Has a low coefficient of thermal expansion-is magnetic. This type of plating includes subtypes such as Black Nickel, Satin Nickel and Electroless Nickel. Satin Nickel is used for furniture, store fixtures, lighting and
plumbing parts. It is available in three types of glossy, semi-glossy and flat.
Electroless Nickel Plating Toronto.
100 percent uniformity of plate thickness on all accessible internal and external areas. Exceptionally good for salvage purpose. Heat treatment at 500'f for one hour should result in coastings with a Vickers hardness of 850 = 150 for class 2 applications. Note: class 2 coating should be applied to those alloys which would be affected by this heat conditioning.
METAL PLATING IN TORONTO.
Nickel plating Toronto is a popular plating metal, especially because it’s useful in electroless Nickel plating In Toronto. Nickel plating often coats household products such as doorknobs, cutlery and shower fixtures for enhanced decoration and wear resistance. Nickel plates commonly bond with copper and aluminum, but also work on a wide variety of metals.
In electroless Nickel plating Toronto, a nickel phosphorous alloy is used. The percentage of phosphorous in the solution can vary between two and 14 percent. Higher levels of phosphorous enhance hardness and corrosion resistance. Lower levels of phosphorous allow higher solderability and magnetism.
Copper Plating Toronto
Copper is another popular plating metal for applications that require high conductivity and cost efficiency. Copper plating Toronto often serves as a strike coating pretreatment for subsequent metal platings. It is also a popular plating metal In Toronto for electronics components such as printed-circuit boards. High-plating efficiency and low material cost make copper one of the less expensive metals to plate with.
There are three types of copper plating processes—alkaline, mildly alkaline and acid. Higher alkaline levels deliver superior throwing power, but require lower current densities and enhanced safety precautions. Health inspectors have linked cyanide in alkaline copper baths to certain health hazards, so it’s important to monitor these levels.
Rhodium Plating Toronto
Rhodium is a type of platinum that provides tarnish resistance, scratch-resistance and a shiny, white
lustrous appearance. Rhodium plating is also common in jewelry production, especially in situations where white gold requires plating. Silver, platinum and copper are also popular base metals for rhodium plating.
One downside of rhodium plating is that the protective barrier of rhodium will eventually wear away in
applications that are subjected to high levels of wear. This can eventually lead to discoloration, and will likely require a second round of plating after a few years.
METAL PLATING IN TORONTO.
Zinc Plating Toronto
Zinc plating Toronto is commonplace in the automotive industry. Zinc deposition resists oxidation and corrosion well, and, as such, vehicle bodies are traditionally zinc plated, as are nails and other metallic products that are prone to rusting. Zinc plating Toronto is often associated with the galvanizing process. In fact, electroplating of zinc is often called electro-galvanization.
Cadmium Plating Toronto
Cadmium plating improves paint adhesion, lubricity and corrosion resistance. A major benefit of cadmium over other plating metals is that adequate wear protection can often be achieved with minimal plating thickness. Major industries that use cadmium plating include the aerospace and military defense industries. Cadmium can be effectively plated on nearly all conductive metals.
Tin Plating Toronto
Tin can be effective for applications that require non-toxicity, high ductility, good solderability and improved resistance to corrosion. These advantages are most helpful in the electronics industry and food processing industry. Tin plating is commonly used on non-ferrous metals such as copper and nickel. Many ferrous metals can also be tin-plated.
Tin plating results in products that vary from matte gray to bright white, depending on the process used. The two types of tin plating are electrodeposition and hot dipping. Alloys such as brass or copper are often added to improve solderability or achieve a desired visual effect.

Passivation Service In Toronto.
Passivation Stainless Steel Toronto:
Our passivation improves the corrosion resistance properties of components made of precipitation-hardened, austenitic, ferritic and martensitic steels. Passivation treatments improve the surface condition of stainless steel by dissolving iron that has been imbedded in the surface during forming or machining. If allowed to remain, the iron can corrode and give the appearance of rust spots on the stainless steel.
Passivation, which consists of immersing stainless steel components in a solution of nitric, phosphoric or citric acid without oxidizing salts, will dissolve the imbedded iron and restore the original corrosion-resistant surface by forming a thin, transparent oxide film.

Nickel Plating Service In Toronto. ,
Sulfamate nickel plating Service In Toronto.
Sulfamate Nickel Process Toronto.
Bright Nickel Plating Service In Toronto.
Bright Nickel Process Toronto.
Nickel is a grey-white metal with a slight yellow tint. Nickel plate can have a matte non-reflective finish or a very bright reflective finish. Nickel is one of the four ferromagnetic materials at room temperature and is a fairly active element. However, nickel deposits are slow to react in standard atmospheric environments due to the formations of a protective oxide surface providing excellent corrosion performance on most products.
M&M PLATING INC. applies Sulfamate Nickel plating, Boron Nickel plating, and Bright Nickel plating.
Our Sulfamate Nickel Plating Service In Toronto.
M&M PLATING INC. performs two types of Sulfamate Nickel plating service in our Toronto plant: Matte Low-Stressed Sulfamate Nickel Plating, and Semi-Bright Sulfamate Nickel plating available in our Toronto plant.
Matte Sulfamate Nickel plating produces a 99.9% pure deposit without any organic brighteners or levelers. The high purity of the deposit affords temperature resistance up to the 1400°C+ melting point of pure nickel. These deposits have a full matte appearance with a slight yellow or golden cast not known for decorative appeal. They also have extremely low deposit stress that can be in the compressive range. The low stress of sulfamate nickel plating yields nickel deposits with ductility, elongation and machinability far superior to other nickel deposits.
Matte Sulfamate Nickel plating excels in joining applications including brazing, soldering, over molding, epoxy bonding, and welding. The high purity and lack of co-deposited organics improves the wetting of the nickel deposit when soldering and makes sulfamate nickel plating the preferred underplate and diffusion barrier when tin plating, silver plating or gold plating for solderability or brazing. In addition, the unleveled matte surface makes sulfamate nickel plating the choice for adhesion in over-molding or epoxy bonding applications.
Semi-Bright Sulfamate Nickel plate is used in places where a bright surface gives a decorative appearance. Semi-Bright Sulfamate is primarily used in areas where handling would discolor Matte Sulfamate nickel. Semi-Bright sulfamate nickel has excellent corrosion resistance and slightly lower solderability than Matte Sulfamate nickel. However, it is harder and has excellent corrosion resistance.
M&M PLATING INC. has extensive experience in Sulfamate Nickel Plating services in Toronto,
Our Bright Nickel plating service in Toronto, is often used as an undercoating to improve reflectivity and leveling to smooth out surface defects. Bright Nickel plate also provides an excellent barrier coating to reduce porosity and improve corrosion resistance. If an article is to be flexed, bent or distorted in the application, Sulfamate Nickel should be considered.
