Corporation specializes in the finishing of
Magnesium, Aluminum, Zinc & Zemak
Working within this area of metallurgy, the proven methods
utilized in years past have required changing. The world-wide green movement has not only required new finishing processes but they
must conform to a demanding world-wide body of regulations. The advent of international business markets has
required U S manufacturers to contend with directives like RoHS,
WEEE, and ELV. These European Union directives
have required changes in the type of process materials that can be used to finish these alloys.
Finishing methods at PowderTech address these requirements and include RoHS, WEEE, & ELV compliant Electroless Nickel, Powder
Coating, Anodizing, and Conversion Coatings. In addition to these processes, PowderTech offers a host of supporting
processes that conform to these guidelines as well.
Because of their physical properties, castings and extruded metals continue to grow in usage both
domestically and world-wide. With that, PowderTech continues to test new and developing processes that may provide
the key to future improvements for processing these alloys.
Utilizing years of experience in organic finishing and specialized plating, PowderTech continues
to provide OEM's, 1st Tier, and 2nd Tier manufacturers with tested and verified processes for castings and extrusions in
support of these alloys.
We recognize the cost of transporting parts adds to the overall cost of a project. To address
this issue, vertically integrated processing at PowderTech offers multiple finishing processes to eliminate
shipping cost between various finishing houses offering only a narrow array of services. Our respected
process knowledge and service excellence reaches customers throughout the US and North America. Parts finished by
PowderTech are utilized by some of the nation's most respected manufacturers and are found on products
If your Company is involved in die casting, sand casting, extruding
or fabricating in these alloys be it
for aerospace, telecommunications, automotive, or the military / defense markets, PowderTech can provide the
knowledge and services for a cost effective and efficient finished product.
And finally, in addition to process & service excellence, PowderTech also provides consulting
to Process Engineers and Project Managers on how to evaluate cost/benefits and performance aspects of varying
processes. We also identify what processes would be required to meet the various AMS, ASTM, MIL Specs as well as
Proprietary Corporate Specifications and help you understand how to best accommodate these requirements into your
manufacturing processes cost effectively.
