room temperature blacking of iron and steel
Many machined parts are manufactured to a tight tolerance, which means plating or painting are not acceptable.
The black surface absorbs wax, oil or rust preventative sealants to give corrosion protection.
A durable black finish enhances the appearance and value of a wide range of manufactured articles.
By reducing light glare from moving tooling or machinery, it eases fatigue and contributes to operator safety.
A uniform black finish of steel components is extremely popular, adding considerably to the perceived value of the product. This, combined with the unique quality that component dimensions are not altered and an even colour is achieved over blind holes and threads, makes it a must for any precision engineer.
Any precision engineering company manufacturing metal parts which require colouring and corrosion protection without resulting in dimensional change would benefit by installing their own Blackfast, room temperature blacking line.
