WHY USE THE BLACKFAST METAL BLACKING PROCESS?
Because the Blackfast solution coverage per litre is high, and the resultant cost per unit of blacking markedly less than other conventional methods such as plating. One litre of concentrated blacking solution will cover between 4 and 8 square meters of steel depending on the substrate to be blacked.
NO DIMENSIONAL CHANGE
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.
The Blackfast Process is suitable for both Small Blacking Lines and larger Automated Production Lines. Any form of Steel from Mild through to Cast Hardened Tool Steel can be Blacked.
