WHY USE THE BLACKFAST METAL BLACKING PROCESS?

Blackfast is a specialist finish for colouring iron and steel components black. It is a safe and easy-to-use chemical immersion process operated at room temperature. The product’s unique quality is that the finish does not result in an alteration to the dimension of the component. Any manufacturer of precision engineered components requiring a decorative finish is a potential customer. These are commonly found within the tooling and machinery manufacturing industry.

COST EFFECTIVE

Because the Blackfast solution coverage per litre is high, and the resultant cost per unit of blacking markedly less than other conventional methods such as plating. One litre of concentrated blacking solution will cover between 4 and 8 square meters of steel depending on the substrate to be blacked.

NO DIMENSIONAL CHANGE

Many machined parts are manufactured to a tight tolerance, which means plating or painting are not acceptable.

CORROSION RESISTANCE

The black surface absorbs wax, oil or rust-preventative sealants to give corrosion protection.

SALES APPEAL

A durable black finish enhances the appearance and value of a wide range of manufactured articles.

SAFETY

By reducing light glare from moving tooling or machinery, it eases fatigue and contributes to operator safety.
