Surface Finishing Options Part One – Chromate and Chrome

Is your part in need of a surface coating but you aren’t sure what would work best? My next four blog posts will feature some of the many different choices that Dynacast has to offer. We offer about thirty different coatings, from chrome to electroless nickel and many more. This post will focus on the chrome and chromate surface finishes. If you see a coating that you’d like but it isn’t listed on our site or mentioned in one of my blogs, please reach out to us! We constantly add new surface coating options based on customers needs.

Surface Coating Options Part Two – Nickel

This blog post will focus on the various types of nickel plating that are available as surface finishes. If you are interested in other elements besides chrome and nickel, my third post will go through the other elements that we currently coat with, such as gold, silver, and tin. Nickel is considered a transition metal and it is hard and ductile with good corrosion resistance. It can be applied using either a rack-process or barrel-process depending on part size and geometry. These make it a great option for coating diecast parts.

Surface Coating Options Part Three – The Elements

In the third piece of my surface coating blog series, I’d like to discuss the elements with you. As mentioned previously, we offer about thirty different surface coatings, and we are constantly adding more. The last two blogs that I posted were related to chrome and nickel surface coatings. While chrome and nickel are both elements, I felt that it was important to distinguish them from the rest of the elements because they offer so many different options. Below are the rest of the elements that are available for surface coating.

The Benefits of Our A3 Machines

As I mentioned in my previous blog on A2 machines, one of Dynacast’s distinguishing factors are our unique machine capabilities. We have proprietary machines that use multi-slide technology and create fast cycle times and precision components. Below I’ve given some additional details on another type of machine we use, the A3.

Die Cast Material Spotlight: EZAC

If you are looking for a high strength, creep resistant, zinc based alloy, keep reading. Dynacast partners with Eastern Alloys, Inc., a manufacturer of world-class zinc alloys. They are constantly working on new alloys that result in better, more economical ways to die cast. By working closely with them, Dynacast offers alloys that many of its competitors do not. It ensures that our customers are receiving the best possible alloy for their components. Recently, Eastern Alloys introduced a new zinc alloy, EZACTM and it may be the right material for your next die casting project.

Aluminum Die Casting Spotlight

Aluminum is one of the most commonly used materials in die casting. It’s lightweight, strong, rigid, and can withstand high temperatures, which makes it common across many industries. Some other qualities of aluminum include:
