Plating / Coating

Cleaner surfaces result in better adhesion and overall quality.
Ultrasonic cleaning prior to plating or coating your parts can provide significant cost savings in time and labor by eliminating manual scrubbing and lengthy soak times.  Ultrasonic cleaning thoroughly and quickly removes buffing compound, shop dirt, and other soils from a variety of metal and plastic items.  Ultrasonic cleaning reaches crevices, blind holes, and other hard-to-reach places, resulting in cleaner parts.  This means better adhesion, which improves the appearance and quality of the finished product.
