Metal Finishing Shops

Metal finishing is a critical process that ensures the longevity of the finished parts.

However, your customer can't see beneath the surface, so they insist on certification that your finishes meet industry specifications.

You need proof you've met the requirements and specifications.

A Metaltest Certified Analysis is your proof that your processes are carried out correctly, and that the results meet your customer's requirements as well as industry and government specifications. Whether you need plating thickness, plating hardness or micro-structural evaluations, Metaltest is equipped to provide your customers with the proof they require. 

If you have your own in-house lab, you know that every so often you have testing requirements that exceed your own capacity. That's where we can lend a hand. Consider Metaltest to be your backup team when you need extra capacity.
