Portable brush electroplating for metal repairs and protective coatings
TEI Auckland Ltd brings selective electroplating (brush plating) to your workshop or worksite, anywhere across the Auckland region. We also have a fully equipped workshop on 172 Station Road, Penrose, where metal repairs can be carried out. Please call Pete on 021 326 289 for details.
Our process is a portable method of electroplating metal componentry. The atomic bond created between the applied coating and the component’s base material is equivalent to the cohesive strength of the base material itself. In fact, very often the application will produce a deposit that has better performance characteristics and is more durable than the original component surface.
Selective electroplating can also be used for preventing corrosion of metal surfaces.
What Is Selective Electroplating?
Originally developed in France circa 1938, selective electroplating–or brush plating–is an electrochemical process specifically designed to be a portable and versatile method of electroplating (coating metal components). Brush plating is performed on localised areas and does not require immersing the part in large tanks of chemicals.
Selective electroplating has been used for the repair and for OEM applications over a wide range of industries from offset printing and manufacturing to aviation and marine.
Why replace your expensive metal componentry when you can repair it with our mobile selective electroplating service.
Replacement parts can be costly and with our mobile electroplating service, replacing your metal componentry is often unnecessary!
Because time is money…
