Anodizing

With our state of the art equipment we are able to provide Type II (Regular) and Type III (Hardcoat) anodizing, in clear, black and blue colors. We can dip your parts in Teflon post processing to add increased lubricity. Processing according to various specifications, including Mil-A-8625F and ASTM-B580. With our goals of consistent quality and quick turn-around we can help you with your anodizing needs.

Black Oxide

Black Oxide is a conversion coating, changing the surface of the steel to black while maintaining the dimensional integrity of the part. It is used extensively on fasteners, tools, gages, hardware, automotive and furniture components along with many other applications. Premier Finishing Inc. offers the true “hot” black oxide process using premium chemistry and products from Heatbath Corp. We also offer a wide variety of rust inhibitors to meet your specific needs.

Rust Removal

Through multiple methods Premier Finishing Inc. is able to remove corrosion from a variety of materials. Citric acid, often coupled with ultrasonics, can be used for delicate parts, hardened, and spring steels. Hydrochloric acid, commonly known as pickling, can be used for rust removal from many standard types of steel. For specific applications (i.e. critical or precision parts) Premier Finishing Inc. offers alkaline derusting. With the above methods we are also able to remove scale created by laser cutting and heat treating. A multitude of rust inhibitors are used to prevent the corrosion from reoccurring, depending on the application and the length of protection required. These include water-based inhibitors, emulsion oils, petroleum oils, waxes, and acrylic. Let us help you when “corrosion happens”.

Vibratory Deburring/Burnishing

Vibratory deburring is a method of improving the surface of a part using mass finishing. We utilize vibratory equipment from Rosler and Roto-Finish paired with different media types (i.e. ceramic, steel, plastic, and corn cob) along with vibratory compounds from Lily Products and Progress Chemical. Whether you need deburring for safe handling, edge breaking, radiusing or improving the Ra value of the surface, we will develop a process and finish your parts to meet your needs. Vibratory deburring can also be used to burnish, degrease, polish, descale, and is a great method for general cleaning.

Parts Washing

Premier Finishing Inc. started in 1997 cleaning parts and it continues to be a important part of our business. Using multiple types of washing and cleaning equipment (i.e. dip, spray, and immersion) with a variety of chemistries we can meet your cleaning needs. Our knowledge and the support from our suppliers will guarantee consistently clean parts and have them ready for the next step in the supply chain.

Passivation

Passivation removes free iron from the surface of stainless steel parts that is often left behind in machining or working the material. The passivation process creates a surface which is more passive and in turn makes the part better protected from future corrosion. Citric acid passivation, the method we use, meets or exceeds today’s passivation specifications which were previously based on older nitric acid passivation methods. This is now rarely used due to safety concerns.

Value Added Services: Transportation, Packaging, Inspection, and Weigh Counting

Once Premier Finishing Inc. has improved your part in one way or another, it may require some value added services before it can move on to the next step. We can help! Depending on your needs, we can box, pack, seal, weigh count, inspect, label or about anything else you need to protect and preserve your parts for you and your customer. We can ship directly with our truck or via another carrier (i.e. your truck, UPS, expediter, or common carrier) to you, your customer or even your next supplier. Let us help you minimize the time and expense required to move your product.
