Coating an extrusion profile protects it against corrosion, improves its wear resistance, and reduces its friction drag, among other benefits.
In the design phase of a product, a lot of time and effort are put into thinking about the material, the shape, and the size of the product. The possibilities offered by a surface treatment often do not receive as much attention as they should. After all, a good coating means a better product.
Mifa offers 38 different surface treatments in its standard programme
We can apply a whole range of coatings to your products, such as a dry lubricating film, adhesive coatings, or anti-stick coatings. We can insulate products or increase their electrical conductivity. A surface treatment can give you a stronger product by improving its wear resistance or hardness. For certain applications, we use coatings which make products chemical resistant. No matter which coating you choose, a product with surface treatment is always more resistant to corrosion than an untreated product.
Customer-specific surface treatments
Our programme offers 38 different treatments. These are the standard processes on which different variants can be based. The variants are nearly always based on customer wishes.
Sometimes, if a customer-specific variant works well and gives a product a unique functionality, we add it to the standard programme.
Here are some examples of specific treatments which we can offer:
This is a special anodizing process which creates very smooth layers with a low friction coefficient. This process is primarily used in the automotive industry.
UV-resistant anodized layer:
This is a special anodizing process which creates a coloured layer which is resistant to UV damage and heat. This process is used in the electronics industry.
This is a special selective hard chrome process in which a number of wear-resistant layers of chrome are applied in a very short time, so no emissions can take place which harm humans or the environment. This process is used in the automotive industry.
This is a special non-stick coating which is used in the pharmaceutical industry.
