Proprietary Coatings for Tooling, Stamping/Deep Drawing Dies, Cutting Tools, Injection & Rubber Molds: 

  • DyCLAD--

    • Very thin Coating thickness (.0001")--thus, does not change the part dimension.   

    • Hardness of 70Rc

    • Superior bond strength.

    • Less friction & tremendous wear resistance--up to 47% improvement.​​​​

  • DyCro-Tuff--

    • This specialty coating offers hybrid chemical polymer impregnated into the hard chrome electro-plating.  

    • The polymer fills-in the micro-crack structure of the chrome, and provides a mirror-like finish and  extended tool life for your molds, tools, etc. 

  • DyCOTE-C--

    • Special cleaning process along with "engineered-chrome" which allows for improved part release from the mold while providing enhanced tool life to the tool.

  • Diamond-wheel OD/Cylindrical' grinding capabilities.

    • We pre-grind to remove coatings on the Rod/Shaft/Cylinders prior the HVOF process.  Then, we fin​ish-grind to specified OD tolerance with micro-finishes of 4-6 Ra.

Other Services Include:​

  • Ultrasonic Cleaning and Micro-Cleaning of Parts

  • Black Oxide--High Temperature

  • Laser Etching Parts for Lot Control 

Environmentally Conscious:

  • We've reduced its' Chrome Plating' Footprint from 15 tanks to 3 tanks.
