Sheet Metal Finishes

Standard

Minimal post-processing or treatment on parts is done.

Bead Blast

The part surface is left with a smooth, matte appearance.

Anodize (Type II Or Type III)

Type II (MIL-A-8625, Type II) creates a corrosion-resistant finish. Sheet metal parts can be anodized in different colors—clear, black, red, and gold are most common—and are usually associated with aluminum. Type III (MIL-A-8625, Type III, Class 1/2 “hardcoat”) is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer in addition to the corrosion resistance seen with Type II.

Chem Film (Chromate Conversion Coating)

This sheet metal finish provides corrosion resistance and good conductivity properties. Chem film can be used as a base for paint and can leave surfaces yellow or gold. Adds very little thickness, about 0.00001”-0.00004.” Chem film will conform to MIL-DTL-5541, TYPE I/II.

Powder Coat

This is a sheet metal fabrication process where powdered paint is sprayed onto a part that is then baked in an oven. This creates a strong, wear- and corrosion-resistant layer that is more durable than standard painting methods. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic.

Electroless Nickel Plating

A sheet metal fabrication process that provides uniform nickel coating which offers protection from corrosion, oxidation, and wear on irregular surfaces. The finished part will be brighter. Thickness starts at .0001” and this finish conforms to MIL-C-26074.

Gold Plating

Gold Plating provides good corrosion and tarnish resistance with excellent solderability. Default application specification is MIL-G-45204 & ASTM B488, CLASS 00, 0, OR 1 (Thickness 0.00002″ – 0.00005″).

Silver Plating

Silver offers high solderability and electrical conductivity but is susceptible to tarnish on sheet metal parts. Conforms to AMS QQ-S-365D. Thickness is about 0.00002”- 0.0003.”

Having Doubts? Our FAQ

Check all our Frequently Asked Question

What is the difference between Metal Stamping and Metal Fabrication?

Metal stamping involves cutting metal sheets into particular sizes or designs with dies, which is great for big volumes. Metal fabrication, on the other hand, comprises cutting, bending, welding, and surface treatments that can be done in any volume. Frigate has you covered for precise parts and custom enclosures.

Can you help me design metal stamping prototypes?

At Frigate, we specialize in sheet metal services to bring your designs to life. Our in-house tools and expertise ensure optimized parts for the perfect fit, form, and function. Count on us to make the stamping process fast, easy, and affordable for you.

What materials can be used to manufacture stamped metal parts?

Frigate uses a variety of materials in its metal fabrication methods. We employ our experience to optimize production schedules and reduce tooling costs for every material used, enabling efficient and cost-effective manufacturing of high-quality stamped metal parts.

How can I minimize the cost of sheet metal parts?

Frigate recognizes the value of cost-effective solutions. We provide economical production while maintaining quality by selecting the appropriate material and optimizing part tolerances. Our value engineering evaluations help reduce the number of parts while achieving the ideal balance between functionality and manufacturability for maximum cost savings.
