Protective Coatings and Film Application

Our painting services allow us to apply protective coatings to steel surfaces, safeguarding them against corrosion,weathering, and wear. These coatings come in a variety of colors and finishes, serving both functional and aesthetic purposes.Film coatings provide an additional layer of protection, enhancing the durability and resistance of steel products against various environmental factors. Film coatings are ideal for applications where the steel surface requires a specific level of protection.Hot dip galvanizing is a robust method for protecting steel from corrosion. This process immerses the steel in molten zinc, forming a resilient coating that resists rust and deterioration, making it particularly suitable for outdoor and exposed applications.Galvanized steel is known for its exceptional corrosion resistance, ensuring that steel products remain durable and reliable even in challenging environments.

For surface preparation and treatment, shot blasting is an effective surface preparation technique, removing contaminants and imperfections from steel surfaces, ensuring that coatings adhere securely. Chatham Steel offers various plating options, including zinc, nickel, and tin plating. These processes enhance the aesthetics and corrosion resistance of steel components, making them suitable for decorative and protective applications. Electroplating allows us to deposit a layer of metal onto the steel surface, enhancing its appearance, corrosion resistance, and electrical conductivity. Bluing steel is a controlled oxidation process that adds a protective layer to steel surfaces, providing corrosion resistance and a distinctive dark appearance. Powder coating is a versatile method for applying protective and decorative finishes to steel. It offers a broad range of color options and finishes, including textured and metallic.

For clean and protected steel, The pickling and oiling process involves cleaning steel with acid to remove any impurities, followed by the application of an oil coating to protect the surface from rust and corrosion during transportation and storage.

Aluminum Surface Treatment

Aluminum anodizing creates an oxide layer on aluminum surfaces, enhancing their durability and resistance to corrosion. Anodized aluminum surfaces are highly resistant to wear, corrosion, and environmental factors, making them suitable for various applications, from architectural elements to aerospace components.

Passivation for Corrosion Resistance

Passivation is a chemical process used to remove iron or iron compounds from the surface of stainless steel, enhancing its corrosion resistance and overall longevity.
