Black Oxide Service

Industrial Plating Company offers black oxide coating solutions for customers in a wide variety of industries.

Black Oxide (also known as blackening or bluing) is a conversion coating for ferrous materials. Black Oxide coatings are typically applied to add mild corrosion resistance and for appearance. Maximum corrosion resistance is achieved by impregnating the black oxide with either oil or wax. One of its advantages over other coatings is its minimal buildup which does not alter the dimensions of machined parts.

Parts are processed in baskets, fixtures, or racks. Our commitment to service and production capabilities enable us to meet your most urgent turnaround requirements.
