We offer quick turnaround, competitive pricing, high quality plating and excellent customer service. Started in 1995 to serve the needs of the growing microwave community, Fin-Tec has grown in size and capability.
Copper Plating – IAW AMS2418
Our cyanide based copper baths are monitored to insure proper deposition to customer specifications. Cyanide based bath chemistry produces a metal finish favored for its diffusion blocking character. We plate copper using both rack and barrel techniques.
Chromate Conversion – IAW Mil-DTL-5541F
Chromate conversion coatings on an aluminum substrate are known by the following terms: chemical film, yellow iridite and the brand names Iridite and Alodine. Chromate conversion coatings are commonly applied to everyday items such as hardware and tools, and can usually be recognized by their distinctively iridescent, greenish-yellow color. Fin-Tec currently has the capability to process both clear and gold finishes
Silver Plating – IAW ASTM B700-08
Silver plating is often used in electrical components; Fin-Tec specializes in silver plating for use in RF / Microwave component applications. We supply silver plating for engineering, electronic, and other industrial applications. Bright and matte deposits are available.
Tin Lead Plating – IAW AMS-P-81728
Matte finish 90/10 deposit provides excellent solderability characteristics. Fin-Tec specializes in tin lead plating for the electronics industry. The addition of lead to an otherwise pure tin bath makes the deposit whisker-resistant and is required for many government applications.
Electroless Nickel – IAW AMS2404
Electroless nickel plating is widely used for engineering applications due to its properties including: high wear resistance, high hardness and corrosion protection. The electroless nickel plating deposit is uniform throughout the part. When electrolytic plating is required on aluminum, electroless nickel is applied as an intermediate deposit, ensuring adhesion of the final plating layer. Mid phosphorous and high phosphorous electroless nickel is available.
Sulfamate Nickel – IAW AMS-QQ-N-290
Sulfamate nickel plating is used for many engineering applications. It is deposited for abrasion and wear resistance, as well as for corrosion protection. Fin-Tec processes product using both rack and barrel plating methods.
Passivation – IAW AMS2700 & ASTM A967-05
Passivation is the removal of free iron from the surface of the steel. This is performed by immersing the steel in an oxidant such as nitric acid. Contact our staff with your specific requirements.
Heat Treat Scale Cleaning
Fin-Tec maintains several chemical solutions used to remove oxides and scale produced during heat treating. Our experts will analyze your parts and recommend a process to properly clean your product.
Hard Gold MIL-DTL-45204
Our Hard Gold plating meets Mil specification MIL-DTL-45204 Type II & ASTM B488 Type II.
