General Magnaplate's surface-enhancement coatings have been engineered to provide metal parts and other substrates with corrosion and chemical resistance, super-hardness and dry lubrication. These coatings impart properties that ensure longer life spans and greater reliability, consequently reducing replacement part expenditure and minimizing downtime needed for cleaning and repair.
As the world leader in surface-enhancement coatings, General Magnaplate solves wear, corrosion and lubrication problems throughout many industries including manufacturing, food processing, oil and gas, medical diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, aerospace, semiconductors and many more. Please see the industries section of our site for more details on the typical applications we process on a daily basis.
The technical team at General Magnaplate works alongside manufacturers to solve wear, corrosion, and lubrication problems with almost any kind of part. We are often considered an extension of our customer's engineering department. Our technical staff can be contacted directly by email if you have a specific application that needs immediate attention. If a suitable coating does not exist, General Magnaplate's engineers will develop a new one to resolve the issue.
General Magnaplate is committed to the conservation of the environment through a series of company-wide 'green' initiatives. Because General Magnaplate's coatings significantly increase the life of parts and tooling, they have a positive effect on the environment through the reduction of energy required for manufacturing new, replacement parts. The increased life span of old parts through coating and repair also significantly reduces the amount of scrap created, while the added dry lubricity property of some of the coatings also eliminates the need for expensive, environmentally damaging petroleum-based lubricants.
